Witness a holiday classic that’s magical for the whole family!

There’s nothing more magical during the holiday season than experiencing the wonder of Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker live, like you’ve never seen it before! The Fox Valley Ballet is proud to bring you The Fox Valley Nutcracker, coming to the Batavia Fine Arts Centre November 25th and 26th. This tradition is fun for the whole family and is certain to put you in the holiday spirit.

The Fox Valley Nutcracker showcases students and families from over 20 different dance schools throughout the Chicago western suburbs ranging from ages 5 thru adult. This performance will also feature professional dancers from the Joffrey Ballet and Chicago’s premier ballet company.

“This year we really wanted to bring together the huge community of talented young dancers.” says Ashlie Andersen, the Artistic Director of the Fox Valley Nutcracker. “We’re excited to entertain audiences with an elaborate, upscale production that includes everything from new and astonishing special effects, to flying aerial work and professional guest performers.”

Performances will be held at the Batavia Fine Arts Centre on Saturday, November 25 at 2:00 & 7:00pm and on Sunday, November 26 at 2:00 pm. Regular tickets for adults run from $25-35 and tickets for children 10 and under are $20-30. VIP seating is also available in the first three rows of the orchestra section for only $40 and include a photo op with characters after the show. For groups of 15 or more, there is a special group rate of 10% off of your total ticket price.
