Get in the Holiday Spirit with The Nutcracker

December 5, 2016

 December is finally here and that can only mean one thing – the Christmas countdown has begun. If you’re looking for a way to get in the holiday spirit from the comfort of your seat, then don’t miss the Brandywine Ballet’s production of The Nutcracker running until Dec. 18 at the Emilie K. Asplundh Concert Hall at 700 S. High Street, which is only one mile away from your Chestnut Square apartment.

Tchaikovsky’s timeless score has been one of Chester County’s signature holiday events for the last 36 years and the Brandywine Ballet’s production features original, traditional choreography by David Kloss and Donna L. Muzio, integrated with new choreographic elements by Nancy Page. Eight performances of the show will run on Dec. 9 at 10 a.m., Dec. 10 at 12 p.m. and 4 p.m., Dec. 11 at 2 p.m., Dec. 15 at 10 a.m., Dec. 17 at 12 p.m. and 4 p.m. and Dec. 18 at 6 p.m. Tickets range from $18 to $45 and can be purchased here.

Tickets are also available to join the ballet as a special guest for an old-fashioned tea, which is being offered before and after select performances in the second floor’s library giving the opportunity for spectators to meet the costumed performers up close, ask questions, get autographs and eat sandwiches and cupcakes and drink hot chocolate.

Brandywine Ballet is the county’s premier non-profit ballet organization and they present fall, winter and spring productions, with their most popular productions being The Nutcracker and Dracula.
