The Alabama Ballet remains one of only seven companies in the world granted the right to perform this holiday classic by the Balanchine Trust. Performed to Balanchine's exacting specifications; dazzling choreography, opulent costumes and extravagant sets make this production unlike any other.
This holiday tradition allows you to marvel at more than 500,000 shining lights on display at the Birmingham Zoo. Walk through the zoo grounds or ride the Zoolight Express Train. Nightly musical entertainment is also a draw. Call for a schedule of crafts, animal demonstrations, musical groups and games. Please check the website for further information. Dates: 5th-7th, 12th-14th, 18th-23rd & 26th-31st.
