Albany Berkshire Ballet's Annual

The Nutcracker tells the story of a young girl, Clara, and the magical dream she has one Christmas Eve. Set to Tchaikovsky’s timeless music, the story of The Nutcracker follows the adventures of Clara and her Nutcracker Prince as they conquer the Mouse King and embark on a magical journey to The Land of Sweets. Choreographed by Madeline Cantarella Culpo and featuring sets by Carl Sprague and costumes designed by Rita Watson & Victile Donahue, ABB's Nutcracker is sure to delight all ages.

For the holidays The Albany Berkshire Ballet offers you a compilation of historic recordings from forty years of our Nutcracker Suite. Some of the footage is very "archival," but we hope you will enjoy seeing the wonderful performances that have been part of our tradition for decades.
