American Repertory Ballet’s Nutcracker has been a holiday tradition since 1964. In the current production, under the direction of Artistic Director Douglas Martin, ARB’s professional dancers are joined by students from Princeton Ballet School to tell the story of a young girl and how a mysterious gift brings about enchanted dreams and fantastical scenes. The dancers bring to life the production's original party scene, choreographed by company founder Audrée Estey, full of warmth and joy, before entering the fantastical and a snow forest and Land of Sweets, featuring choreography by Douglas Martin. Spectacular sets by Carl Sprague, including a magnificent growing Christmas tree, and costumes by Gina Ricca create the atmosphere of dreamlike magic. Whether it’s your first time, an annual tradition, or a once-in-a-lifetime experience, ARB's Nutcracker is a perfect holiday treat for your entire family to be transported and inspired.

The performance on December 4, 2015 is a School Time Matinee. Contact Lisa Beth Vettoso, Director of Educational and Community Programming, for more information:, 732.249.1254 x19
