Ft Lauderdale Events: Miami City Ballet Presents The Nutcracker
The enchanting ballet The Nutcracker is a holiday tradition that spans generations, and you can treat your family to this magical performance at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts on December 14-16, 2012. Danced by the Miami City Ballet, The Nutcracker is a magical story of toys that come to life under the Christmas tree – and who have holiday plans of their own.

Miami City Ballet presents The Nutcracker in five performances over the weekend, with matinees on both Saturday and Sunday afternoons. With elaborate sets and dazzling special effects, this unique Fort Lauderdale event is a magical treat for children of all ages – and in fact, a large cast of talented local children will perform alongside the professional dance troupe for a truly special event.

Tickets are available in advance online or in person at the box office, and prices range from $20-$134 for each performance.
