The Nutcracker 2023

We begin our season each winter with The Nutcracker.

PVB’s pre-professional dancers and community performers from across Western Massachusetts tell the classic tale of The Nutcracker in this treasured community event. Pioneer Valley Ballet has been performing this holiday classic for over 40 years, one of the longest-running performances of the ballet in Massachusetts.

Join Clara as she battles the Rat King to save the Nutcracker Prince, and then travel to the enchanted Snow Forest and beautiful Kingdom of Sweets. The story of The Nutcracker is a holiday classic that has charmed audiences of all ages for decades.
