Experience the THE NUTCRACKER up close while enjoying a sumptuous meal at the magnificent Spindletop Hall. Choose to attend the afternoon tea for a light meal and a quick tour through the land of sweets or the full dinner for an entire evening of entertainment. Marie and the Nutcracker Prince, Snow Queen, Sugar Plum and the other magical guests will re-enact the Stahlbaum holiday party, midnight battle, and tour through the Land of Sweets to the timeless music of Tchaikovsky. Lexington Ballet performs this beautiful masterpiece under the artistic direction of Luis Dominguez. It's sure to put you in the Christmas spirit!
