"The story is familiar, but its magic never grows tiresome—and American Repertory Ballet tells it with a wealth of details," says Robert Johnson of The Star-Ledger
American Repertory Ballet presents the annual return of The Nutcracker this holiday season! The lush Victorian-era production features Tchaikovsky’s magnificent score performed with a live orchestra, a cast of over 100 performers, plus beautiful costumes and sets (this year features a new tree). Director Douglas Martin’s Nutcracker choreography is “a marvel of deliberate grace…filled with bounding energy,” (Robert Johnson, Star-Ledger). American Repertory Ballet’s critically acclaimed dancers will be joined by students from Princeton Ballet School to tell the classic tale of a girl’s magical holiday journey. Photos by George Jones.

Meet the Dancers
Mary Pat Robertson of American Repertory Ballet will host a post-performance discussion with costumed characters after the 1pm performance on December 21. This will be a special chance for audience members to meet the dancers, ask questions, and request autographs.
