The magic of the holiday season begins with the Nutcracker. Come celebrate a very special performance of the holiday classic with the American Academy Nutcracker. This production has become a Western New York favorite, selling out performances at UB Center for the Arts. Now in its 22nd year, it is Buffalo’s longest running production of “The Nutcracker.” The charm of this production is its child-friendly approach. Choreographed to delight children of all ages, there are surprises tucked into every scene.
Misa Kuranaga, principal dancer with Boston Ballet, and Daniel Ulbricht, principal dancer with New York City Ballet, will perform the lead roles of the Sugar Plum Fairy and her Cavalier.
Come early and be sure to visit the Victorian Village set up in the Atrium with many boutiques and live holiday music. Children can visit Mrs. Claus who will be reading holiday stories.
