Celebrating 10 years of awe-inspiring magic and dazzling holiday cheer, Nashville’s Nutcracker will ring in the season with additional characters and all-new magical elements. A truly local production through and through with clever nods to the city’s sparkly past, Nashville’s Nutcracker epitomizes the holiday season in Music City.

“Vasterling's epic work is a joyous and colorful greeting card to the people of Music City…a holiday-scented love letter to his adopted hometown.” – Jeffrey Ellis, Broadway World (2016)

To celebrate 10 years of Nashville’s Nutcracker, we are adding all-new magical elements, including letting it snow in the audience!
