About The Event: Virginia’s Blue Ridge Holiday Tradition!  

Clara always looked forward to the Christmas Eve celebrations at the Silberhaus household: the party, the dancing & gifts always made for a special evening. This Christmas Herr Drosselmeyer arrives with special presents and magic, making this night one she will cherish forever. Join Clara and the Nutcracker Prince as they battle giant mice, dance with snowflakes and journey to the Land of the Sweets where the Sugar Plum Fairy entertains them with exotic dances from around the world. 

Southwest Virginia Ballet, now celebrating its 33rd season, has made the annual production of the Nutcracker a holiday tradition for families and visitors to the Roanoke Valley. Featuring a cast of 150 performers that represent over 15 dance schools from the Roanoke Valley and beyond, the ballet continues to delight audiences of all ages year after year. Cast members drawn from the community join SVB’s dancers to bring this story to life with choreography by Pedro Szalay following Terri Post and Elie Lazar, and the traditional music by Tchaikovsky. “The Nutcracker” is adapted from the story The Nutcracker and the Mouse King by E.T.A. Hoffmann. The beautiful music, lush scenery and lavish costumes bring the magic to life as Clara’s Christmas tree grows to huge proportions, mice and soldiers battle, and candies and sweets from exotic lands arrive to entertain Clara and her Prince. NEW THIS YEAR! Enjoy the performance with LIVE orchestral accompaniment following the founding of SVB’s very own orchestra Virginia’s Blue Ridge Orchestra!

Southwest Virginia Ballet offers a VIP Experience for the Nutcracker - VIP Experience ticket holders will see the dancers as they prepare to perform, as well as visit and take photos. Special access will be granted allowing VIP ticket holders to come onstage and witness last-minute show preparations as the orchestra tunes their instruments and the crew transforms the proscenium into the Silberhaus’ ballroom, or even the Land of Sweets! While onstage, our artistic director, Pedro Szalay, will teach abbreviated excerpts while sharing some of the phenomenal works that create a joyful experience for audience and performers alike! Join us with your VIP experience ticket for a special introduction to the “magic of backstage” at the Nutcracker.
