The Arts Council of Big Sky is pleased to bring a production of Montana Ballet Company’s “The Nutcracker” to the Warren Miller Performing Arts Center on Sunday, Dec. 14 at 4 p.m.

MBC’s production of “The Nutcracker,” set to Tchaikovsky’s beloved score, is one of the largest artistic collaborations in the region featuring the work of accomplished dancers, local and national level choreographers, guest artists, live musicians, seasoned stage technicians, lighting and costume designers, and a host of dedicated volunteers. For this special performance at WMPAC, a live chamber orchestra will perform the music and the ballet will feature local dancers under the direction of Jennifer Waters.
