Oahu Nutcracker Ballet Performances
There are at least three Nutcracker Ballet performances
on Oahu every year, presented by Ballet Hawaii,
the Hawaii State Ballet, and the Hawaii Ballet Theatre.
In 2008 there was also a "Nutcracker on Ice" performance
at Honolulu's Ice Palace.
Ballet Hawaii's Nutcracker at the Blaisdell Concert Hall
Ballet Hawaii Nutcracker
Every year Ballet Hawaii produces an elaborate
performance of the Nutcracker Ballet with
live music by the Honolulu Symphony and
live singing by the Hawaii Youth Opera Chorus.
The 2008 Ballet Hawaii Nutcracker Ballet will
be performed under the direction of Pamela Taylor-Tongg
December 19-21, 2008 in the Blaisdell
Concert Hall. For tickets to the 2008
performance call 877-570-4400. For information
about future performances contact Ballet Hawaii or
the Blaisdell Center Box Office. Note that Ballet
Hawaii's Nutcracker will not be performed on Maui
in 2008 but it was performed there in 2007 and it
will very likely be there again in 2009.
(An interesting note about Ballet Hawaii: They
were founded in 1976 as support group for the Honolulu City Ballet).
Hawaii State Ballet Nutcracker
The Hawaii State Ballet produces a less elaborate
(and less expensive) Nutcracker Ballet every year.
The 2008 Hawaii State Ballet Nutcracker will be
performed under the direction of John Landovsky
December 12-14, 2008 and December 19-21, 2008 at the
Mamiya Theater at Saint Louis High School. For more
information about the 2008 event or future Hawaii State
Ballet Nutcracker performances contact their office

Honolulu Dance Theater Hawaiian Nutcracker
I believe the last time the Honolulu Dance Theatre
performed their Hawaiian style Nutcracker Ballet
was December 1-3, 2006.
This was a unique version of the
Nutcracker Ballet that featured
King Kalakaua, Princess Kaiulani,
ancient warrior battles, the waltz of
the hibiscus flowers, and other symbols
