For six decades, the Louisville Ballet has given the community one of its most beloved holiday traditions: The Nutcracker Ballet.

This year, the Frazier Museum pays homage to this local take on a Russian classic with “Nutcracker the Exhibition: 60 Years of Magic and Majesty.”

The one-of-a-kind exhibit at the Frazier features a wide-ranging collection of items from Louisville Ballet Nutcracker productions of the past, primarily the 1983 and 1995 seasons, as well as the 2009 season, when it entered into a sponsorship with Brown-Forman.
