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.

In addition to the ballet excerpts, guests will enjoy a delicious tea service, to include savory and sweet treats. They can also shop for holiday gifts from exciting vendors, and can purchase raffle tickets for fun prizes, to include gift baskets and stuffed animals. Take pictures with costumed dancers mingling with the children and enjoy a special time with family and friends.

There will be two 2019 Nutcracker Teas at SPAC: November 17th at 11:00AM, and November 17th at 3:00PM.
