Children and adults alike have enjoyed the The Washington Ballet's holiday-time performance of Tchaikovsky's "The Nutcracker" for decades. Septime Webre's beloved classic is distinctly local in atmosphere, with its hero portrayed as none other than George Washington. The performance's cast includes more than 200 members of the city's foremost ballet company, as well as students from the Washington School of Ballet. It is presented both at DC's historic Warner Theater and at THEARC. Tickets start at around $30.
