Loyce Houlton’s Nutcracker Fantasy

Minnesota’s Longest Running Holiday Event Celebrates it’s Golden Half-Century

2014 marks the 50th anniversary of Loyce Houlton’s  Nutcracker Fantasy performances in the Twin Cities, holding the distinction of the longest-running holiday arts event in Minnesota history!  MDT announces its return to the Historic State Theatre in downtown Minneapolis with the 44 piece Nutcracker Orchestra led by Philip Brunelle!

Enchanting Audiences for 50 Years

The story begins at a Christmas party in 19th century Germany, and unfolds through the eyes of Marie. Her wizardly Godfather Drosselmayer weaves a magical fantasy, taking her on an extraordinary adventure to the Land of Snow and the Kingdom of the Sugar Plum Fairy.

Experience the brilliant music of Tchaikovsky and the beautiful choreography of Loyce Houlton – one of Minnesota’s most treasured holiday experiences.

“One of the nation’s 10 best Nutcrackers.” – Jack Anderson, The New York Times

“… A marvel of balletic storytelling”- Mike Steele, Minneapolis Star Tribune
