Discount Houston Ballet’s The Nutcracker Tickets

Houston Ballet's NutcrackerThe Nutcracker is a family tradition that I enjoy with my girls to kick off the holidays, even as they get older. Just the special memory of dressing up, going downtown, and enjoying this classic by Houston Ballet never gets old.

Looking for a way to experience The Nutcracker, by Houston Ballet, with a discount? While there aren’t any promo codes, tickets are generally $10 cheaper per seat (with some sections $5 cheaper) for Thanksgiving weekend evening shows and dates into December. Prices range from $29 – $109 on discount nights. Actually, Balcony 2 seats are $15 cheaper on these discount nights ($29 instead of $44). Here are the special dates and times with discounted pricing:

  • Saturday, November 28, 7:30 pm

This is the final year of Ben Stevenson’s production of The Nutcracker, which premiered 28 years ago. Next year Houston Ballet will premier a new version by Stanton Welch, artistic director.

Purchase your tickets to the Houston Ballet’s The Nutcracker at 713.227.2787 or online here. Some seat locations are already sold out.

{I realize this is an expensive outing to include on this site, but this is such a Houston tradition it’s hard not to include. This just offers a little cheaper option for those who enjoy seeing the downtown Houston Ballet. I will be sharing some other studios performing The Nutcracker throughout the community this week.}
