New Jersey Ballet's seasonal presentation of the holiday classic Nutcracker comes to Mayo Performing Arts Center for 14 performances beginning Friday, Dec. 13 at 7:30 p.m.

New Jersey Symphony Orchestra will provide live orchestral accompaniment. Tickets are $29-69.

Returning this season are three performances held post-Christmas, Dec. 26 and Dec. 27. As the time leading up to the holidays may be too busy to enjoy the performance, MPAC will hold three performances after the holidays - including two matinees - for families who still want to share in the spirit of the season.

New Jersey Ballet's Nutcracker at MPAC will feature the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Gary S. Fagin. When the curtain rises, audiences in Morristown can expect the eye-popping special effects, brilliant dancing, glorious costumes, and the magic and pantomime that have inspired critics to call it "A spectacle that never seems to age.magic that should go on and on," and "One of the best.as good as it gets."
