Celebrate the Holidays with Ballet Hawaii’s Nutcracker presented with a unique Hawaiian historical theme. Enjoy Tchaikovsky’s classic ballet re-interpreted and set in the 1858 Kingdom of Hawaii.

What better way to celebrate the Holidays than by combining a timeless Nutcracker with the grandeur and elegance of the Hawaiian monarchy. Audiences can anticipate all the traditional holiday dance performances but with historical characterizations of Washington Place resident Mary Dominis and Hawaii’s beloved Queen Lili’uokalani. In this production, the flowers are Crown, Hibiscus and Plumeria. The birds are I’iwi and new island animal performers are introduced, such as the Honu (sacred Hawaiian Turtle). The toy soldier uniforms are patterned after those of the Royal Guard and the famous waltz of the snowflakes takes place high upon the slopes of Mauna Kea.  It truly is a delight to behold!

The inspiration for this special performance came when the creative team learned that Mary Dominis held a Christmas Eve children’s party at Washington Place in 1858. At the party Hawaii’s first Christmas tree was lit with candles as Saint Nicholas passed out candies and gifts for all.

A customized production of this quality would not be possible without the support of such sponsors as Starwood Hotels & Resorts Waikiki, The Honolulu Star-Advertiser, Cades Foundation, and many others.
