The Nutcracker is a classic this time of year, and for the tenth year in a row you can see it at one of our favorite spots in the city. Shea’s is once again welcoming a collaboration with the Neglia Ballet and the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra. You can expect incredible live ballet plus Tchaikovsky’s score making this production a must-attend. From curtain rise to final bows, it will exceed expectations.

Local artists are of course running the show, but international guests are also taking the stage. Sergii Sydorski, a former principal dancer with the Schevchenko National Ballet Theater in Ukraine, and  Gretel Batista, a principal dancer with the Dance Alive National Ballet, will be taking the lead as this year’s Cavalier and Sugar Plum.

The original premiere back in 2009 was perhaps the largest locally-produced presentation in Western New York at the time, and instantly met with rave reviews. Since then, the collaborations’s popularity has only grown. This year is extra special because many original cast members (then young kids) that appeared in the premiere are returning for the 10th anniversary.

It’s the most wonderful time of year to get into the holiday spirit, especially with a timeless tradition like The Nutcracker. You have two chances to see this show. Don’t sleep on this one friends. December is coming up quick, and locking in your seat now is 100% the move.

Showtimes are set for Saturday 12/22 at 7 p.m. and Sunday 12/23 at 2 p.m. Neglia Ballet’s The Nutcracker at Shea’s is a community favorite again and again, and once you attend you’ll understand why. Make it a family affair. Kids, teens, and adults of all ages can truly enjoy this show.
