The Magic of the Night Before Christmas

The Nutcracker is the classic holiday tale which captures all of the joy and excitement of the night before Christmas. Young Clara receives a mysterious gift which she can’t wait to open. As she unwraps the gift, she finds a nutcracker doll inside.

That night, as she drifts off to sleep, Clara awakens in a magical dream world and finds a wondrous adventure awaiting her.

The nutcracker doll that she received is actually a prince in this Land of Enchantment. The two of them embark on an exciting journey in search of the Kingdom of Snow and the Kingdom of Sweets.

The Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre

Based in the Strip District of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre traces its origins back to the early 1960’s.

During that period, a choreographer from Yugoslavia, Nicolas Petrov, started putting on numerous small ballets in the Pittsburgh area. One of the most notable productions he put on was the Nutcracker which featured 85 students from the Pittsburgh Playhouse. By 1970, the Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre made its stage debut at the Pittsburgh Playhouse. Its inaugural subscription season in 1970-71 was completely sold out and featured Petrov’s Swan Lake and the Nutcracker.

In its first few years, the Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre brought in some of the most prolific performers of that era to perform in their productions. This included the likes of Violette Verdy, Natalia Makarova, and Edward Villella.
