The Nutcracker 2022

December 3, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 7:00 pm, repeating until December 4, 2022

Celebrate the Holidays with Ballet Hawaii’s lavish Hawaiian-themed Nutcracker presented in the 1858 Kingdom of Hawaii. The production is choreographed by Septime Webre with guest artists from New York City Ballet, Pacific Northwest Ballet, Carolina Ballet, and Eugene Ballet and accompanied by members of the Hawaii Symphony Orchestra.


What better way to celebrate the Holidays than by combining a timeless Nutcracker with the grandeur and elegance of the Hawaiian monarchy? Audiences can anticipate all the traditional holiday dances, but with historical characterizations of Washington Place resident Mary Dominis and Hawaii’s beloved Queen Lili’uokalani. In this production, the flowers are Crown Flowers, Hibiscus and Plumeria. The birds are I’iwi and new island animal performers are introduced, such as the Honu (sacred Hawaiian Turtle). The toy soldier uniforms are patterned after those of the Royal Guard and the famous Waltz of the Snowflakes takes place atop the slopes of Mauna Kea.  It is truly a delight to behold!
