The Pennsylvania Ballet is celebrating its 25th anniversary of one of the greatest and grandest family traditions in Philadelphia: The Nutcracker!
This year, like any other year, George Balanchine and Roy Kaiser are bringing over 50,000 people, from South Philadelphia, Center City, and more, to Philadelphia’s Academy of Music to enchant them with elaborate costumes, extravagant sets, and breathtaking dancing.
The Philadelphia Boys Choir, along with a host of local dancers, will be there to make the production even more special and local! The New York Post raves, calling the show, “compellingly stylish…the really good news from Philadelphia is the way these Pennsylvanians dance.”
With 23 stunning performances scheduled, guests will have plenty of time to see the show before the holidays are over! Tickets are just $20 and can be purchased over the phone at 215-893-1999, in person at the Kimmel Center Box Office, or online at www.paballet.org.
For those that want to give a little more this year, you’re more than welcome to bring new, unwrapped toys for needy children. Once collected by the Salvation Army, they will be distributed to families in the Delaware Valley to make their Holiday season a bit more merry.
