Bringing Happy Holidays to All


Though The Nutcracker is a longstanding American holiday tradition, not everyone gets to take part.

With the help of the non-profit organization Art-Reach, PA Ballet is making a classic tale accessible to a wider audience.

The Pennsylvania Ballet’s production of The Nutcracker takes place at Philadelphia’s Academy of Music on December 22, 2016. Learn more here.
