“The coming together of a ballet school’s dance company, an orchestra and a great venue, is a significant artistic occasion.” - Richard Duckett, Telegram & Gazette
Kick off your holiday season with a spectacular treat for the whole family, The Nutcracker, Thanksgiving weekend at The Hanover Theatre.
The only Massachusetts Nutcracker outside of Boston to feature a full-sized, live orchestra, this production will enchant you with its brilliant dancing and vibrant costumes.
The Nutcracker is a two-act ballet by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky based on the stories of E.T.A. Hoffmann and Alexandre Dumas and first performed in Russia in December 1892. The story revolves around Clara, a young girl who receives a nutcracker doll as a Christmas gift and then enters a magical world where the nutcracker and other characters come to life.
