Help us refurbish and grow our beloved Christmas tree in our annual holiday production of George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker®!

Alabama Ballet is one of only eight companies in the world licensed by the Balanchine Trust to perform George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker® and 2022 will be our 20th year performing this holiday classic.

If you’re anything like us, one of your favorite parts of this performance is the growing Christmas tree seen in the Act I party scene. This tree has been accompanied and adored by many children, dancers, and audiences over the past twenty years; holding a special place in everyone’s hearts and on our stage.

For its 20th birthday, we are giving our tree a much-needed glow-up and grow-up! New lights, ornaments, and an additional new tier will allow our tree to glow brighter and grow three feet taller than it currently is.

We need your help to bring the magic back to our old Christmas tree for its 20th year on stage. Please consider donating to our Christmas Tree Fund – donations of over $100 will receive a custom commemorative ornament which will be available for pick-up in the lobby of the BJCC Concert Hall at our Nutcracker Boutique, Dec. 16-23.

Your support is hugely appreciated and important to our community as we continue to bring this holiday tradition to families in Birmingham for years to come.
