New England Ballet Company presents

Tchaikovsky’s holiday favorite, The Nutcracker

The composer, Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky, premiered his work 126 years ago during the holiday season, beginning a family tradition that has continued through the generations.

The ballet tells the story of a Christmas party, the gift of a nutcracker doll to Clara from her toymaker godfather, Herr Drosselmeyer, and the young Clara’s dreams, all set to the beautiful melodies of the now famous score. The moment the lights dim, the audience is transported to a magic place filled with adorable children, marching toy soldiers, a villainous Rat King and mischievous mice. Enter the Land of Sweets through a dreamy on-stage snowstorm led by the elegant Snow Queen and Prince, with little angels to light the way.

Choreographer and Artistic Director Victor Trevino creates a Nutcracker for New England Ballet Company that is a magical holiday gift perfect for all ages!
