Event Description

An Indianapolis holiday season tradition continues bigger and better than ever in 2018, when Indianapolis Ballet and Methodist Sports Medicine will proudly present The Nutcracker at the historic Murat Theatre at Old National Centre from December 14-16.


After establishing its production of The Nutcracker as a local must-see during the holidays across the last 11 years, the Indianapolis School of Ballet will continue to be a part of Indiana’s grandest staging of the classic Christmas tale alongside the 20 members of the new Indianapolis Ballet professional company.


Since moving to the Old National Centre in 2016, the production has grown to include live orchestral accompaniment – and for the second straight year IB is excited to have the 45-piece Indianapolis Ballet Orchestra on hand to bring Tchaikovsky’s popular holiday score to life!


Nutcracker Tea Reception – SOLD OUT

Prior to Saturday, Dec. 15 performance from 1:00-2:00 p.m.


Families can get a head start on their magical holiday experience by attending the Nutcracker Tea Reception in the Old National Centre’s Deluxe Room prior to the Saturday, Dec. 15 matinee performance.


During the Nutcracker Tea, guests will be able to meet and take photos with Nutcracker performers, enjoy complimentary treats and take home a special Nutcracker-themed gift!


Please note that a ticket for that afternoon’s 2:00 p.m. performance of The Nutcracker will also be necessary for entrance to the Nutcracker Tea event, which will be included as an “add-on” purchase for that performance.
