Best Mouse King on TV: The Nutcracker

Cincinnati Ballet

The Cincinnati Ballet’s annual performance of holiday classic The Nutcracker was closed to in-person attendance and instead aired on WLWT as “The Nutcracker at Home.” Complete with an experiential gift box, score performed by the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra and all the other magical moments fans have come to expect from the show, this was the first time the ballet aired on local TV. cballet.org.
