Location: The Willson Auditorium, 404 W Main St, Bozeman, Montana 59715


For the past 36 years during the Christmas Stroll weekend in downtown Bozeman, Montana Ballet Company (MBC) has presented The Nutcracker. First performed in the lobby of First Security Bank, MBC’s Nutcracker has become a cherished holiday tradition for countless performers and their families and friends, as well as the thousands of audience members who share in the experience year after year.


This year, The Nutcracker will be performed at the Willson Auditorium on Saturday, December 7 and Sunday, December 8. “Each and every cast has its own special energy and gifts, breathing fresh life into this historic ballet. No two productions are the same,” notes MBC’s Artistic Executive Director, Elizabeth DeFanti.


MBC is thrilled to welcome exceptional guest artists from the world-renowned New York City Ballet, Sebastián Villarini-Vélez, and Indiana Woodward, performing the celebrated roles of Snow King and Queen and Sugar Plum and her Cavalier. Villarini-Vélez and Woodward will share the stage with Soren Kisiel, co-director of Broad Comedy, MBC's own company dancers, and over 100 dancers from the community.


Another highlight of this charming production is the live orchestra. Maestro Lee Mills, Associate Conductor of the Seattle Symphony and winner of the Solti Foundation U.S. Career Assistance Award in both 2014 and 2017, will conduct the Bozeman Symphony playing Tchaikovsky’s beloved score.


Celebrating 36 years in Bozeman, MBC’s production of The Nutcracker is one of the largest artistic collaborations in the region featuring the talents of master choreographers, distinguished guest artists, accomplished dancers, live musicians, seasoned stage technicians, costume and lighting designers, and a host of dedicated volunteers. MBC’s Nutcracker is a treat for the entire family!
