Sugar plum fairies, toy soldiers, waltzing flowers, and more magical characters will soon be dancing across local stages. The Nutcracker is a staple of the holidays, and seeing a performance of Tchaikovsky’s festive ballet is an annual tradition for families all around the area.

The NVB, along with its affiliate school, The Academy of Russian Ballet, present their ninth annual production of The Nutcracker on Saturday, November 25, at the Hylton Performing Arts Center in Manassas, VA. Starring ballet world superstars Irina Dvorovenko and Maxim Beloserkovsky, the show is full of lavish costuming, exquisite imported sets, and features the award-winning dancers of the Academy.
The production is family friendly and adheres to tradition. Sets and backgrounds were produced in Russian theatres, and costumes are either custom made in Russia and Europe or by an in-house design team. The 75 local performers from the Academy joining Ms. Dvorovenko and Mr. Beloserkovsky onstage range in age from three to eighteen.
Two performances will take place at 2pm and 6pm. Tickets are $35/adult, $25/child, senior, & military, and can be purchased online — use code: INSIDENOVA for 20% off tickets! You can also try to win them though the giveaway below.
