Consistently among SPAC's most popular events, to be held at the Hall of Springs Restaurant on Sunday, November 20 at 11 a.m. (Sold Out) and 3 p.m.
The Nutcracker, composed in 1891 by Tchaikovsky, is a fairy tale ballet that tells the story of a little girl's journey through a fantasy world of fairies, princes, toy soldiers and an army of mice. First performed in 1892 in St. Petersburg, Russia, it has become an American classic since choreographer George Balanchine introduced his production in 1954 in New York City. SPAC's Nutcracker Tea Series has become a highly anticipated, family-friendly celebration at the beginning of the holiday season, with all proceeds benefitting arts education programs at SPAC.
The annual celebration hosts hundreds of children and their families dressed in holiday finery, with the Hall of Springs richly decorated to create a winter wonderland.
