The Nutcracker 2018

PVB begins its season each winter with The Nutcracker.

This year marks our 40th annual production!

This treasured community event includes over 250 dancers from towns throughout Western Massachusetts, performing parts ranging from enchanting snowflakes to the tiniest reindeer. They dance alongside pre-professional students and guest artists from Boston, New York, and the Carolina Ballet.

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.
