The Nutcracker is the essence of the holiday season!

“After a successful premiere last year, I am excited to present our Nutcracker this season,” says Colleen Smith, Artistic Director of Ballet Palm. “This timeless and much-loved ballet matches the incredible talent of Palm Beach County's professional ballet dancers to a magnificent venue and creates a memorable holiday tradition for audiences of all ages.”

The Nutcracker, the legendary ballet story written in 1816 by German author E. T. A. Hoffmann, in which young Marie Stahlbaum's favorite Christmas toy, the Nutcracker, comes alive on Christmas Eve. Adventures ensue as Tchaikovsky’s score draws Marie into a terrifying battle with the Mouse King, past a mystical snowstorm, and to the prince's Enchanted Kingdom.

In 1892, composer Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky and

choreographers Mariu Petipa and Lev Ivanov turned Alexandre Dumas's adaptation of the story into the ballet The Nutcracker.

The Ballet Palm Beach's Nutcracker will feature 18 professional dancers and character artists, along with 59 students from Ballet Palm Beach Academy. This is the second time the dance company will present this grandly re-imagined production that reviewers hailed as “an extraordinary show” There are limited dates available so get your tickets early.
