The Washington Ballet gives its annual performance of “The Nutcracker” at the Warner Theatre (513 13th St., N.W.) through Dec. 28.
This version of “The Nutcracker” is set in Georgetown in 1882 with the classic roles replaced with historical figures such as General George Washington as the Nutcracker and King George III as the Rat King. More than 100 dancers bring their flair to the Christmas tale set to the musical score by Tchaikovsky. Doors open one hour prior to showtime. Tickets range from $32-136.
