WINNER: Congratulations to herbeverschmel!

Seeing The Nutcracker during the holidays is a must, at least once in your life. There are so many performances of this ballet, that it’s almost impossible not to find one perfect for your family.

South Orange Performing Arts Center (SOPAC) has a version perfect for families of all ages, even the kiddies.

E. A. Hoffmann’s fairy tale, The Nutcracker and the Mouse King, first premiered in 1892 with music by Peter Tchaikovsky and choreographer Marius Petipa. New York Theatre Ballet’s production, choreographed by Keith Michael, is the only hour-long Nutcracker, presented by a professional troupe, in the metro area. It is perfectly suited to the attention span of younger audience members, yet sophisticated enough for the most discerning adult.

Want to take the family to see the show? It’s your lucky day. Thanks to the generosity of SOPAC, we have a Family 4-Pack of tickets for The Nutcracker at SOPAC on Sunday, December 4 at 7 pm.

Keep reading for all the details….
