In 2004, Circo Luci created its first holiday themed theatrical circus production, a Cirque Nutcracker for the U.S. Air Force in Japan. A new age twist on a holiday classic, Cirque Nutcracker thrilled military audiences across Japan with its premier tour, earning raves from Stars and Stripes.
The show adds modern arrangements and mixes to the classic Nutcracker score, remixing the original into a new classic.

this mesmerizing show will leave you astounded…
A Nutcracker Cirque is a contemporary take on the classic story of the Christmas classic. New-age physical circus artistry is melded with the beauty and timelessness of ballet and modern dance movement. This fusion is choreographed to a new modern take on the original Nutcracker musical score, breathing new life into the beauty of the original classic.
Nutcracker Cirque from Circo Luci is available for booking for multi-week holiday engagements worldwide only during the months of November and December. The show has a theater version but can also be presented in several different types of unique and specialized entertainment locations, including convention centers, temporary spaces, tents, open areas, retail venues and outdoor settings.
The Nutcracker Cirque production includes the following:
Shipping requirements can be scaled depending on show size and scope of technical infrastructure required for the performance. The show can adapt to existing staging, lighting and rigging layouts. POET Theatricals’ goal is to reduce the preproduction cost and installation of the show as much as possible, and we work with presenters to trim these expenses.
Examples of shipping requirements are:
