Eastern Connecticut Ballet’s full-scale production of “The Nutcracker" involves more than 100 dancers, 35 musicians, 18 stage crew members, thousands of swirling snowflakes, and a dream-like voyage around the world.

New York City Ballet sensation, Sara Mearns, "the great American ballerina of our time," returns to The Garde Arts Center in New London for another breathtaking performance with Eastern Connecticut Ballet. New London’s own “Nutcracker” is both a holiday tradition and a tour de force. Sharing the spotlight is Jared Angle from NYCB.

Join Clara on her spectacular journey around the world. Applaud her brave-hearted Nutcracker, The Snow King and Snow Queen, sailors and pirate rats, the comical Mere Gigogne, waltzing flowers, dancing snowflakes, and of course, the exquisite Sugar Plum Fairy. Sail away on an enchanted ship from a seaport very much like New London in the 1850s and watch a battle on the high seas and a snowstorm in the Arctic.
