    This December, experience the annual holiday spectacular, George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker™.Presented by Pennsylvania Ballet and PNC Arts Alive, The Nutcracker tells the adventurous tale of a young girl who dreams of a Nutcracker Prince in a wondrous Land of Sweets.

    Hear Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky's score performed live by the Pennsylvania Ballet Orchestra and the Philadelphia Boys Choir. With a cast of over 100 performers, this show is a must-see.

    “There’s just nothing that compares to Balanchine’s Nutcracker,” artistic director Roy Kaiser says. “His choreography is a near-perfect reflection of the Tschaikovsky score. We’re so proud to bring this production to Philadelphia audiences year after year.”

    Bring the family to the historic Academy of Music December 4 through December 31. Tickets are available at the PA Ballet and begin as low as $30. With 24 performances, we’re sure you’ll find one that fits your schedule.
