The Nutcracker Brings Local Art to the Big Stage

Magic, mischief, romance, battle and exquisite dance: The Nutcracker has it all, and for everyone in your family.
You all know the story, but what makes Festival Ballet Providence’s version better than the rest? It’s ours, that’s why.
It’s remarkable in itself that a small, local dance company can put on such a grand show — not just expertly choreographed, but with memorable special effects, an intricate set and a sweet pooch named Archie, to boot. Plus, all of the youngest ballerinas to grace the PPAC stage, including the mass of adorable angels, are local participants in Festival Ballet’s young children program.
So go to support local arts. Go to witness holiday magic. Perhaps most importantly, go to see the beauty of it all. We have proof: Scroll down for photos from previous performances.
