The Nutcracker

Gen Horiuchi’s The Nutcracker has become the region’s most popular holiday production. Year after year, thousands of children, teens, and adults, mark their calendars for the spectacle on stage. A dazzling set at the Touhill frames the company dancers, professional character actors, and talented students from the school of the Saint Louis Ballet. And now, with a larger cast and some new choreography!

Hundreds of colorful costumes and special effects enhance the timeless tale, loosely based on the E.T.A. Hoffmann fantasy The Nutcracker and the Mouse King. Clara’s life-size nutcracker comes to life on Christmas Eve, and together, they embark on wonderful adventures in magical lands (Land of the Sweets!) -- waging battles against the evil Mouse King.

Swan Lake

Saint Louis Ballet’s most popular program is now enhanced by the lush sounds of live music,
courtesy of the Springfield Symphony Orchestra. The story of the princess, turned into a swan by an
evil sorcerer’s curse, is an achingly beautiful tale – now a staple in every major ballet company’s repertoire.
First performed by the Bolshoi Ballet in Moscow in 1877, the ballet is performed to a magnificent
Tchaikovsky score that drives the emotional and tragic love story of Siegfried and Odette. “Moonlit”
dances that fill the stage, varied and difficult choreography, and a live symphony orchestra.
If you have but one ballet to see, Swan Lake is the one.
