Every December, The Marigny Opera Ballet presents an original full-length reimagining of "The Nutcracker" ballet, with an original jazz score by New Orleans great, Lawrence Sieberth and choreographed by Jarina Carvalho. Set in Jackson Square on Christmas Eve, a young girl is transported through the Kingdom of Rain to the Kingdom of Sweets, and then back again to her bench on the Square.
A nonprofit performing arts center housed in a landmark 1853 church, presenting a full season of classical music, opera, theatre and jazz. Home of the Marigny Opera Ballet. Occasionally available for event rentals.
