Los Angeles Ballet’s Annual Nutcracker Tea at Waldorf Astoria – November 19th, 2022

Enter the splendor of Clara’s dreamy Winter Wonderland filled with falling “snow” and delightful music. Catered by Jean George, you will be treated to High Tea sweets and savories while you wait for a special performance of scenes from The Nutcracker. Enjoy sparkling Holiday Crafts, Mystery Gifts, pose for a keepsake photo with Santa and even dance with Clara & her doll friends. After the Tea, sip hot cocoa (and sparkling rosé for the grownups!) as you peruse our exclusive Winter Market for unique holiday gifts and cherished mementos. Support LA Ballet!
