NEWS: Philippine Ballet Theatre kicks off its Yuletide tradition with THE NUTCRACKER

PBT’s The Nutcracker (2017)

In the Philippines, we kick off the Yuletide dance holiday season with the Philippine Ballet Theatre’s presentation of the world’s most popular classic Christmas ballet, “The Nutcracker”, at the Main Theater of the Cultural Center of the Philippines. PBT’s annual reprise of this Christmas ballet favorite is always a much-anticipated event so audiences are encouraged to reserve tickets early to ensure seats. There will only be two shows – November 18 (Sat) 8pm Gala and a November 19 (Sunday) 3pm Matinee.

This year’s Gala performance has been sponsored by the Inner Wheel Clubs of the Philippines Foundation, Inc., headed by President Victorina I. Magadia, in coopration with the Inner Wheel Clubs of the Philippines, Inc. headed by National President Gloria Golez.

PBT’s 3rd offering for this 31st season, “The Nutcracker” will surely enthrall the audience with its colorful, larger-than-life scenery, toys that come alive, swirling snowflakes and waltzing flowers. Enjoy listening too, to the heartwarming and enchanting music that is a signature Christmas repertoire.

Visit our Christmas village at the Main Lobby of the Main Theater and experience this festive merrymaking through our wide selection of food and products that are unique to our Christmas celebrations.

A portion of the proceeds of the show will benefit our Cultural Outreach Education Program (CORE), an educational outreach in the form of free ballet classes in public schools nationwide, and performances to thousands of school children and provincial communities.

Let us all share the true spirit and joy of the Yuletide Season. See you at the theater!
