Join us for BVI’s Nutcracker 2017 with live orchestra by Symphonicity and experience the beauty and athleticism of this timeless classic. Enjoy nationally recognized guest artists and our region’s finest dancers. 

Escape with Clara and her Nutcracker as he comes to life and saves her from the evil Rat King and his minions. Witness Dr. Drosselmeyer’s magical snow as it transforms Clara and her beloved Nutcracker into a beautiful princess and a handsome prince. Waltzing flowers, tiny mice and a delightful Sugar Plum Fairy will make a treasured memory and put the entire family in a warm holiday mood.
