About the Saenger Theatre

Welcome to the home of Moscow Ballet's Great Russian Nutcracker in New Orleans! Designed by Emile Weil, the Saenger Theatre was built by Julian Saenger in 1927 for the theretofore unheard of price of $2.5 million dollars. Advertisements of the day described it as “an acre of seats in a garden of Florentine splendor”. In 2005, the Saenger Theatre was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. Yet within months of the storm, a groundswell of interest in the renovation and reopening of the theatre began to grow, and, in December 2011; the agreements to restore the theatre were finalized.The Saenger Theatre reopened its doors in September 2013. The expanded theatre stage house will be equipped with state-of-the-art theatrical systems ensuring the Saenger will be the most technically advanced theatre in the South.
