Experience The Nutcracker performed live by the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra while Troupe Vertigo bring it to life on-stage … and 40 feet above it!  The awe-inspiring talents of Troupe Vertigo come to the concert hall as acrobats, contortionists, jugglers, strongmen and high-flying aerialists join the BSO for this spectacular holiday-themed show.

This is the perfect way to get into the holiday spirit with your family and loved ones, while enjoying a show like no other in the heart of Baltimore's famous arts district. But first, we'll enjoy a pre-show reception with heavy hors d'oeuvres, refreshments and a complimentary drink ticket (cash bar available).

Cost: $32 (includes the show plus food and one drink ticket at the pre-show reception)
