Texas Ballet Theater will present a filmed production of Artistic Director Ben Stevenson, O.B.E.’s The Nutcracker online to keep the holiday spirit alive amid COVID-19.

Tickets are priced per household and patrons can purchase them through the company’s Box Office, either online or by calling 877-828-9200. option 1. The productions can be streamed at any time, December 14-26.
