It simply isn’t the holidays without a trip to the Academy of Music for a performance of George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker®. For decades, this amazing production has been Philadelphia’s most beloved holiday tradition. Set to Tchaikovsky’s famous score, the incredible dancing and lavish sets and costumes bring to life the story of a young girl’s magical dream – a dream that never loses its appeal.
This is a sensory-friendly performance. Sensory-friendly performances are designed to create a welcoming environment for families with children who are on the autism spectrum or may have sensory sensitivities. They are also for anyone who may benefit from being in a more relaxed environment. For more information, please click here.
George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker® is currently available as an add-on to a 2019/2020 Season subscription. Single tickets will be available later this summer.
