I probably would not have been able to afford taking my daughter to the nutcracker. This groupon allowed me to give her this great experience. Thank you! The dancers were superb!

The Syracuse City Ballet’s troupe of talented local dancers artfully arcs and twirls through performances of family-friendly tales. In the holiday performance of A Children’s Nutcracker, the troupe vivifies the beloved holiday favorite, aiming to engage youthful audiences who might otherwise know ballet only as a tactic in street-fighting video games. The Syracuse New Times hailed last year’s performance as “thoroughly engaging and smartly comedic.” A stageful of talented youths and professional dancers recreates the magical hours when young Clara’s Christmas toys come alive, with tiny mice pirouetting across the stage and a blustering Rat King caught in a giant mouse trap. Both Saturday performances also invite families to a preshow Sugar Plum Social at which to hobnob with Santa, costumed members of the cast, and gingerbread-house construction workers.
