A Tea Party To Top Them All: The Nutcracker Tea!

One of the premier holiday events in the Capital Region, this event features excerpts of The Nutcracker performed by Northeast Ballet Company. 

The Nutcracker, a classic holiday ballet set to Tchaikovsky's 1891 score, tells the story of a little girl’s journey through a fantasy world of fairies, princes, toy soldiers and an army of mice. First performed in 1892 in St. Petersburg, Russia, it has become an American classic since choreographer George Balanchine introduced his production in 1954 in New York City.

Ballet excerpts performed by Northeast Ballet Company; other activities include a raffle for nutcracker dolls, ornaments and more; costumed dancers mingling with the children; holiday ornaments for sale; and a gift for each child.

There will be two 2017 Nutcracker Teas at SPAC: November 19th at 11:00AM, and November 19th at 3:00PM.
