Pennsylvania Ballet’s The Nutcracker
Philadelphia holiday tradition with Pennsylvania Ballet
December 7-29, 2013
This holiday season, celebrate with one of Philadelphia’s greatest family traditions—the Pennsylvania Ballet’s performance of George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker™ at the Academy of Music.
The unforgettable classic will once again transport audiences as Marie and her Prince battle the evil Mouse King and travel to the Land of the Sweets where the Sugarplum Fairy reigns. The production is brought to life with gorgeous costumes, amazing sets and incredible dancing.
Set to Peter Ilych Tchaikovsky’s magnificent score, Pennsylvania Ballet’s production of The Nutcracker has become a beloved Philadelphia holiday tradition, attracting more than 50,000 people each year.
A number of additional activities surround this annual extravaganza, including special events, family-friendly parties, charitable opportunities, exclusive appearances and more.
This is one of the city’s most popular holiday events, so reserve your tickets early to secure a great seat.
