Ballet Arts Ensemble and Artistic Director Cathleen Huling present NUTCRACKER 2017.

Are you looking for an affordably priced holiday concert that will please the entire family?  Look no further!

Ballet Arts Ensemble brings the magic and wonder of Nutcracker 2017 to the stage of Kalamazoo’s classic Chenery Auditorium on Saturday, December 9 at 2:00 pm and 7:00  pm and Sunday, December 10 at 2:00  pm.

This community collaboration features:

  • Live music by members of the KSO, Daniel Brier conducting.
  • Guest performers from the Kalamazoo Children’s Chorus.
  • A local cast of more than 100 children and adults.
  • Professional dancers from the Cincinnati Ballet and Grand Rapids Ballet in the principal roles of the Prince and the Sugar Plum Fairy.


A traditional favorite, BAE’s full-length production about Clara and her nutcracker is noted for its attractive sets, lavish costumes, and the delightful choreography of Artistic Director Cathleen Huling.  The last three Nutcrackers were performed for sell-out crowds, and over that time nearly 12,000 people had the opportunity to experience dance and music that filled them with the spirit of the season.


Tickets are priced from $15 to $22 and are on sale at the Miller Auditorium box office (269.387.2300).  At these prices, tickets will sell out quickly—especially for the Sunday show.  So make your reservations early to get the best seats!
