The Nutcracker Tea Party

This year there will be a very special seasonal pre-show treat: The Nutcracker Tea Party. While adults sip a glass of champagne, children will be gathered to listen to the story of “The Nutcracker” and be visited by some of the characters from the ballet. The elegant sit-down tea will be prepared by Chef Laurent Brazier of the beloved Bistro Papillote and now part of White House Catering. The tea will include delicious finger sandwiches, sweet treats, tea and lemonade. Photo opportunities and a party favor for each guest are included in the Nutcracker Tea Party ticket price.
