This spectacular production involves 134 costumes, over 120 performers from Berkshire Ballet Theatre and Summers Academy of Dance, 41 pairs of pointe shoes, 25 pounds of wintery snow, 2 local personalities from Williams Street Repertory, and of course, 1 very special Nutcracker! These elements come together to create a truly enchanting journey through ETA Hoffman’s classic narrative of “The Nutcracker and the Mouse King.”
