The Nutcracker

The Nutcracker

A Mankato Ballet Company Tradition

Mankato Ballet Company is thrilled to present our full length ballet, The Nutcracker, to the Mankato community this winter.  We could not be more honored to bring performances of this holiday favorite to our loyal audience members.

MBC features a full performance weekend with 6 shows at various times over the weekend.  Enjoy a matinee with your children or enjoy a holiday date night at our evening shows. Regardless of when you attend the event is sure to be magical.

Currently, there are no masking requirements for this performance. This is subject to change as MBC must follow any mask and COVID-19 protocols instituted by the college at the time of the performances.
