MCB is offering 1,000 tickets to first responders and essential workers for the opening night performance of the holiday classic.

If you're an essential worker or first responder, Miami City Ballet wants you to know it's nuts about you.

The company has set aside 1,000 free tickets for the opening night performance of George Balanchine’s "The Nutcracker" at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts.

MCB says the free tickets for these everyday heroes are a heartfelt "thanks" for all the vital work they do.

Essential workers include teachers, people who work in hospitals and supermarkets and maintenance workers: including people who perform general maintenance, repairs and caretaking of physical assets, buildings and infrastructure.

First responders include law enforcement, firefighters, ambulance technicians, and 911 dispatchers.

Tickets to the holiday classic will be made available at 4 p.m. Wednesday, December 1.

The 1,000 free tickets will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis and are limited to four tickets per person.
