With all of the exciting things happening in Nashville right now, it’s easy to forget the unique history of the city. Historically, we have an important place in the state and in the South in general. We also know Nashville is home to some seriously talented artists, dancers and musicians. Culturally, Music City is climbing the charts of cities that embrace the arts in all forms. The Nashville Ballet is celebrating the city’s past and future by presenting a Nashville-themed version of the classic ballet while featuring nearly 300 of the next generation of dancers.

A Nod to the Past

Back in 2008, Nashville Ballet incorporated Nashville’s glittering past into the classic tale of Clara and her magical adventure. Since then, it’s been wowing audiences with its beautiful depiction of this sweet Christmas story.

The stage and costumes might even take you back to your own wonder-filled days, eagerly anticipating Christmas and the joy and magic it brings.

Heralding the Future

If you want to know what the future of dance and performance looks like in Nashville, look no further than the young cast members onstage with the professional dancers of the Nashville Ballet and alongside the musicians of the Nashville Symphony.

Open auditions were held for children in the area, and those chosen come from Davidson and 10 surrounding counties. From soldiers to lambs, these children are bringing the story to life and learning the business at the same time!
