Escape to the Land of Sweets for the Philadelphia region's most beloved holiday tradition, George Balanchine's The Nutcracker™. For 46 years, families have created yuletide memories with Pennsylvania Ballet's production of this classic tale. The simple story of a girl, a gift, and a fanciful dream is made magical by opulent sets and costumes, the charm of The School of Pennsylvania Ballet students, and the impassioned artistry of Pennsylvania Ballet dancers.
