Kudos to Artistic Director Douglas Martin and the ARB staff, professional company, and related Princeton Ballet School for two hours of magic, thrills, entertainment, and almost unimaginable beauty.


Why See American Repertory Ballet: The Nutcracker?

One of America's longest-running Nutcrackers

American Repertory Ballet presents the annual return of The Nutcracker this holiday season. The lush Victorian-era production features Tchaikovsky's magnificent score, performed with a live orchestra, and a cast of over 100 performers. Joined by students from the Princeton Ballet School, the American Repertory Ballet's production of The Nutcracker is a delightful family evening for audiences young and old, and a wonderful way to ring in Christmas.

A charming coming-of-age story, we follow the journey of Clara, as she embarks on an adventure that most of us could only dream of, battling giant rodents and meeting quite literally, her Prince Charming in the form of a wooden nutcracker doll, who magically comes alive at the stroke of midnight on Christmas morning. After succeeding against the evil Mouse army, they venture to a magical world filled with dancing snowflakes, sweets and flowers, all ruled over by the benevolent Snow Queen and the Sugar Plum Fairy.
