BalletMet is making holiday plans and we want you to be a part of them!

A Nutcracker Holiday

Join us at THE PREMIERE and help BalletMet bring A Nutcracker Holiday to our community.

Our theaters may be closed this year, but it’s still Nutcracker time at BalletMet! A Nutcracker Holiday is a virtual celebration, available to all on our website December 5-27. The centerpiece is a new video, Clara’s Nutcracker Prince, featuring some of your favorite scenes, characters and dances from BalletMet stage performances. Interactive activities will have the whole family dancing, making crafts and learning about ballet. Virtual experiences will also be shared with partner schools and community agencies.

THE PREMIERE will open the month-long celebration on December 4 and includes special content for donors, plus the opportunity to be the first to see Clara’s Nutcracker Prince. Your sponsorship will support A Nutcracker Holiday, keeping the tradition and magic of BalletMet’s The Nutcrackealive.

Please help BalletMet share the magic of The Nutcracker this holiday season!

Sponsors and ticket-holders receive exclusive access to watch the premiere of Clara’s Nutcracker Prince, prominent public recognition and a special gift or treat for the celebration.
