An Annual Dubuque Christmas Tradition!

Whirling Snowflakes and waltzing Flowers frame this beloved holiday classic.  Clara and her enchanted Nutcracker battle the dreadful Mouse King in a nightmare that becomes a beautiful dream.  Performed annually for over 20 years, the DCYB production will be a highlight of your family’s holiday celebration.

The 2023 production of The Nutcracker will feature new design elements that are inspired by Dubuque and the surrounding area.

This production is appropriate for the whole family!

Running Time: approximately 2 hours including intermission.
