Brandywine Ballet Company Presents 33rd Annual Nutcracker


Brandywine Ballet is proud to announce its 2012-13 performances of The Nutcracker December 7 ? 16, 2012, as well as Nutcracker Tea, December 8, 9 and 16 (specific performance dates and times listed below).

Brandywine Ballet continues its residency this season at Emilie K. Asplundh Concert Hall. Individual tickets range from $25-$40. Tickets and a complete schedule are available by at 610.696.2711 and  www.brandywineballet.org.

The Nutcracker is a two-act ballet, which follows young Clara as she is transported from a whimsical holiday party in Victorian England to the enchanted Land of the Sweets. Join Clara for her marvelous journey, in which Toy Soldiers and Mice battle fiercely, the Sugar Plum Fairy reigns supreme, and an all-ages cast of more than 80 dancers and actors create pure ballet magic on stage. As the narrative unfolds, comical high jinks and holiday fun transpire against a backdrop of antique decors, period piece costumes, and picturesquely animated action.

Audiences are also invited to attend Brandywine Ballet’s popular Nutcracker Tea event in the Philips Autograph Library (adjacent to the theater) Dec. 8 at 2:30pm, Dec. 9 at 12:30pm, and Dec. 15 at 2:30pm. Join Clara, The Sugar Plum Fairy and other characters of The Nutcracker for a special brunch full of party delights, including tea sandwiches, fruit tray, cookies and favors! Nutcracker Tea tickets are $25 per person and available online at www.brandywineballet.org or by telephone at 610.696.2711.
