The Nutcracker 2020
Fort Wayne Ballet Presents:

The Nutcracker 2020

Fort Wayne Ballet’s Original

Fort Wayne’s favorite holiday classic! A story of a young girl, a Nutcracker prince, and the evil Mouse King that brings together the whole family for an experience of holiday magic — and a fantastic journey to the Kingdom of Sweets! It’s more than a family tradition — it’s a holiday feast for the eyes and ears!

Due to Covid-19 guidelines and protocols from the State and local Health Department, all December 4-13 in-person performances of Fort Wayne Ballet’s Original The Nutcracker are cancelled; however, we are pleased to offer Virtual Film viewing of the full version of The Nutcracker which was recently taped for ticket holders and for purchase. The full-length Nutcracker film will be available to watch online Friday, December 4th at 6pm through Sunday, December 6th at 6pm and Friday, December 11th at 6pm through Sunday, December 13th at 6pm.


There are two options for ticket holders of the in-person production of The Nutcracker:
1) Donate the cost of your ticket and receive access to the virtual production while supporting Fort Wayne Ballet during this difficult time;
2) Request a refund.
Regardless of each ticket holder’s choice, they need to contact the ArtsTix Community Box Office at 260.422.4226 by Thursday, December 3, 2020, with their decision.
All tickets remaining after that date will be considered donations to the Ballet.


Those who had not yet purchased tickets to The Nutcracker are still able to receive access the virtual production. Access to the full-length version of The Nutcracker will be granted to anyone who donates $50 or more at fortwayneballet.org/donate with viewing open from Friday, December 4th at 6pm through Sunday, December 6th at 6pm and Friday, December 11th at 6pm through Sunday, December 13th at 6pm.

Fort Wayne Ballet is committed to the health and safety of its patrons, staff, dancers, students, and their families. This decision is in response to the latest Covid-19.
