Miami City Ballet’s unique production of George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker® is the most “magnificent, dazzling” way to celebrate the festive season with your loved ones (Broadway World).
At a cozy Christmas Eve party, a brave little girl called Marie receives a mysterious gift.

Isabel, with her husband Ruben (who designed the sets) always by her side, created a magical dreamscape to revel in for generations to come. Or, as Ruben explains, “Through color and the use of beautiful soft-pastels – because of the candy land, and children, and the idea of Miami sunsets and sunrises, the sherbertness of it all – one beautiful vision.”
