In case you didn’t know, this is the final year for that beloved holiday tradition of going to the Fabulous Fox Theatre to see The Nutcracker. In 2020, the Atlanta Ballet will move its production to the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Center.
The Nutcracker will be at the Fox Theatre from December 7, 2019 through December 24, 2019. There are a total of 19 performances, including both evening shows and afternoon matinees.
There are a couple of ways to save on tickets — take a look at both.

The OffEncore deal
Thanks to a special deal from OffEncore, you can score seats for 25% off regular price, plus an extra-low ticket fee.
You’ll pay $75, plus a $5 ticketing fee. Your tickets will be emailed to you.
The seats available are in the Center Orchestra section.They start at Row M and get farther from the stage. This means you’ll be under the balcony overhang.
You don’t see your actual row and seat number until after you purchase.
These seats normally sell for $100 from the Atlanta Ballet’s website, with a $22 fee. So if you purchase the deal, you’ll pay a total of $80 for a ticket that would normally cost $122 — you just lose the privilege to choose your own seat.
Still too pricey? See the deals below, for holiday performances on the cheap.
