You can be an Angel. For a donation of $30 per child, you can sponsor an underprivileged child to attend The Nutcracker.

In 2001 Ballet Arizona presented its first “Nutcracker Angel Night.” With donations from “community angels” — ticket buyers, subscribers, and corporate and private donors whose financial gifts help defray the evening’s expenses — Angel Nights are a unique and treasured community service.

Each year more than 4,000 tickets are made available free of charge to clients from service organizations and children and families from community centers in disadvantaged neighborhoods.

The number of agencies served has grown to more than 150, resulting in the additional Angel Nights added throughout the season.

Nutcracker Angel Night December 2014

Ballet Arizona presents the 2014 Nutcracker Angel Night on Thursday, December 11th at 6:30 pm. A tremendously popular event recognized for its contribution to service organizations in the greater Phoenix area, Nutcracker Angel Night is a treasured experience. Those who attend are sure to enjoy a splendid performance from our remarkable Company.

“I want to sincerely thank you for the tickets to “The Nutcracker.” Without your generosity, we would never have had the opportunity to experience something as beautiful. My two-year-old daughter’s eyes sparkled with happiness & excitement at the sight of the snow. She danced and laughed — the sight was absolutely priceless!! Thank you! Thank you!!!”
