All Ages
Pioneer Valley Ballet's beloved holiday performance of the classic ballet, with dancers from throughout the Pioneer Valley and beyond.

Join Clara as she battles the Rat King to save the Nutcracker Prince, then travel through the enchanted Snow Forest and beautiful Kingdom of the Sweets. It's Pioneer Valley Ballet's The Nutcracker, returning for its 41st year to the Academy of Music.

From the Snow Queen to the tiniest reindeer, this treasured community event features PVB's pre-professional students, guest artists, and 250 dancers from towns throughout Western Massachusetts. With its enchanting score by Tchaikovsky, PVB weaves the tale of a girl, a gift, and the magic of Christmas into the perfect holiday treat for the whole family.

Special Performance with Musical Guests

It's become a new tradition: We turn our Friday night performance into an evening packed with extra entertainment. You get a full Nutcracker performance along with special performances by the UMass Doo Wop Shop, and other fun treats sprinkled throughout. If you're looking for a date night performance, this is the one.
