'Frisch's Presents The Nutcrakcer'

Cincinnati Ballet’s lavish 42nd-annual production of The Nutcracker opens Friday with 11 shows this season. The huge, full-scale production, colorfully re-envisioned in a 2011 world premiere with new sets, costumes and lighting, once again tells the adventures of Clara, a small girl who journeys with her Nutcracker Prince through the Land of Sweets. Choreography is by Artistic Director and CEO Victoria Morgan. A special tweak this year is the addition of four talented dancers from Elementz Hip Hop studios to the battle scene between Mice and Soldiers. The Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, under the baton of Carmon DeLeone, brings live music to the mix. 


Various afternoon and evening programs through Dec. 27. $32-$95. Aronoff Center for the Arts, 650 Walnut St., Downtown, 513-621-5282, cballet.org
