Pennsylvania Ballet's annual production of George Balanchine's The Nutcracker offers two hours' worth of sheer theatrical magic, something no one should ever feel too old, or too serious, to enjoy!

Journey to the wondrous Land of Sweets with the Pennsylvania Ballet for Philadelphia's most beloved holiday tradition. Follow Marie and her Prince through the dazzling party scene, a harrowing battle, a glistening forest full of snow, and into the Sugarplum Fairy's kingdom. Spectacular sets and costumes make this 45 year-old tradition sparkle like new!

A must-see for children and adults alike, this production boasts world-class dancing, dozens of young students from The School of Pennsylvania Ballet, and all the flair of a Broadway spectacular.
