The Mutt-cracker

Birmingham Ballet’s The Mutt-cracker has been featured on Inside Edition and made headlines in the Chicago Tribune, USA TODAY, The UK Telegraph and newspapers all over the world. See why Birmingham Ballet’s The Mutt-cracker became an international sensation. The Mutt-cracker, a new twist a “classic tail”, is essentially Birmingham Ballet’s The Nutcracker with the addition of dogs performing along side the dancers. The holiday favorite is brought to life with masterful story-telling and exciting dancing by professionals as well as local talented aspiring youth. Exciting dancing, beautiful costumes, magical surprises, and of course... the DOGS, make this production delightfully fun!
