Cleveland Ballet is delivering on its core values of inclusivity and accessibility by announcing a special Pay What You Can performance of The Nutcracker. The Thursday, December 14, 11 a.m. and Sunday, December 17, 7 p.m., performance of The Nutcracker at the Connor Palace in Playhouse Square has been designated as open to everyone.


“World class ballet in Cleveland should be accessible to all, especially children and seniors who may not have the resources or ability to go to an evening performance,” said Howard Bender, Interim President & CEO of Cleveland Ballet. In creating the Pay What You Can program, Cleveland Ballet hopes to encourage schools, home schoolers, and older adults to attend the affordable performance of this cherished holiday tradition.


While it is suggested that tickets start at $10, that does not mean that Cleveland Ballet will turn anyone away. Special provisions can be made by calling Cleveland Ballet ticketing at 216.320.9000, ext 107. Otherwise, tickets can be purchased through Playhouse Square.
