As the dancers and I share the magic of the holiday season with you, I reflect with gratitude on the time we will share this season. Ballet Austin feels fortunate to bring our community together for our 59th annual production of a work that has become Austin’s holiday tradition. The Nutcracker not only represents the childlike wonder in all of us, but it reminds us of our favorite holiday reflections, as we add new memories each year; a gift beyond measure. For some of you the excitement is about the sights and the colors of the production, and for others it’s the sound of the timeless music… but for Ballet Austin it’s the honor of being stewards of this holiday gathering for nearly 30,000 Central Texans each year.

Thank you for making Ballet Austin part of the magic of your holiday season!
Stephen Mills
