Fully-staged production of "The Nutcracker" at Broome County Forum

BINGHAMTON, N.Y. - The Binghamton Philharmonic is joining a long-time holiday tradition at the Forum this weekend.

The Philharmonic has partnered with the Rafael Grigorian Ballet to host a fully-staged production of "The Nutcracker."

It features the live orchestra performing Tchaikovsky's traditional score, with original choreography from Grigorian.

The 3-act performance includes the traditional story of Clara falling asleep and her toy nutcracker coming to life to fight the mouse king.

Philharmonic Executive Director Brittany Hall says people can treat themselves to a big-town show at a small town price.

"This performance is the only one taking place in our region, where you can actually see a live orchestra perform the Nutcracker.  Otherwise, you have to go to New York or Philadelphia to see the performance.  But, it's right here in Binghamton," said Hall.

The performance takes place on Saturday at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets are almost sold out.

For seats, call the box office at (607) 723-3931.
