Classic Nutcracker is a treat for the whole family, ushering in the spirit of the season as it brings Clara’s story to life. Celebrate family and friends in the warm drawing room of the Silberhaus family and watch the surroundings transform before your eyes. Magical toys and enchanted mice battle in Clara’s home until enchanted snow transports her to the Land of the Sweets ruled by the Sugar Plum Fairy. Children of all ages delight in the charm, beauty, and grandeur of this beloved holiday tradition featuring a cast of over 100 performers and award-winning dancers.

What would the holidays be without George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker®? Whether it’s your first or thirty-first time seeing Pennsylvania Ballet’s production of the classic, watching the timeless story brought to life is always a delight. From a festive family party to the exciting battle between the Nutcracker and the Mouse King, and the delectable journey through the Land of Sweets, Marie’s magical story is thrilling for the young – and young at heart.
