Why See Santa Barbara Festival Ballet: The Nutcracker?
Enter the kingdom of the Sugar Plumb Fairy!
Arlington Theater's annual Nutcracker performance is always the highlight of the calendar and this year boasts a cast including professional guest artists, student dancers and the Santa Barbara Symphony all joining forces to create some real holiday magic for audiences spanning across the generations.
Beautifully costumed, with Herr Drosselmeyer and his clockwork dolls, Rat King and toy soldiers, waltzing flowers and dancing snowflakes, and a giant Christmas Tree that grows before your eyes, this Nutcracker will delight audiences of all ages.

A whole new world blooms before her, one in which the Sugar Plum Fairy reigns over the Land of Sweets and the Mouse King's army wreak havoc...
