I have done the research for you and assembled 12+ places to see The Nutcracker Ballet in Maryland and Washington DC.
If you want the most magical experience, see the Washington Ballet Nutcracker. The costumes and set are exquisite and the Warner Theatre really dazzles.
This is a particularly great performance if you have younger kids or are uncertain how they will do with a more fancy Nutcracker.
Talmi Entertainment cast includes top artists from around the globe including places like Ukraine, Tokyo, Italy, Russia, Poland, Kazakhstan, Germany, and more!
Another great option for an Annapolis Nutcracker Ballet! The dates for Nutcracker Performances are December 15-17.
It is set in modern-day New York City and is a very popular version of The Nutcracker! A unique performance that might be perfect for your family!
