Nutcracker Magic

Performance at the Academy of Music at 2:00pm

Venture to the Land of the Sweets this holiday season with Pennsylvania Ballet.

Experience a special display by Moore College of Art & Design of original Nutcracker Dolls that were crafted through our annual contest with Philadelphia Parks & Recreation. Following the party, you and your guests will be escorted to the Academy of Music for the matinee performance of George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker®.
