Miami City Ballet will host its annual Nutcracker Magic Children’s Soire where you will enjoy a spectacular holiday brunch in a winter wonderland setting before attending a VIP performance of George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker. During the brunch reception sponsored by David and Leila Centner Foundation | Centner Academy, and hosted by event Co-Chairs Asha Elias, Nikki Squire and Tina van der Ven, there will be dancing, sweet treats, and kids will have the exclusive opportunity to meet dancers from the production. After brunch, make your way to prime seating for the 1 p.m. performance of The Nutcracker. Guests will be transported to a magical world of toy soldiers, colorful characters and the enchanting “Dance of the Sugarplum Fairy”. Balanchine’s iconic choreography and Tchaikovsky’s timeless score, performed by a live orchestra, complete the experience. Backstage access with themed photo opportunities are available for VIP and sponsor level ticket-holders. VIP Tickets are $500 for children and adults.
