Plan Your Perfect Winter Holiday In Stowe
Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center announces an incredible entertainment line-up for the 2019 Winter Holiday Week of December 21st - 28th! You'll find something perfect for everyone in your family!
Kicking off the Holiday Week is the world-renowned jazzman John Pizzarelli's centennial celebration of Nat King Cole, John Pizzarelli Trio "For Centennial Reasons: 100 Year Salute to Nat King Cole" on Saturday, December 21, 7pm. For his third career tribute album, Grammy-nominated John Pizzarelli deftly steps back into Nat King Cole's evocative, historic songbook. While plenty of jazz greats have influenced his work, Cole has been Pizzarelli's hero and foundation for over 25 years. Accompanying John on guitar and vocals and playing tunes worthy of the 1940s pop/jazz icon is Konrad Paszkudzki on piano, and Mike Karnon on bass. Don't miss this one!
Jump into winter with Warren Miller's newest film, Timeless, presented by Volkswagen, on Sunday, December 22nd at 7pm. After seven decades of celebrating skiing and snowboarding, Warren Miller Entertainment can confirm that the joys of winter are eternal. Take in jaw-dropping thrills from the slopes of the Rockies to the rooftops of the Alps alongside all-star athletes, including Vermont native Jim Ryan. It's more than a ski and snowboard film, it's an experience. All moviegoers will receive cool swag.
On Monday, December 23 at 3pm, the holiday classic, The Nutcracker - Bolshoi Ballet in HD Film, dances onto our theater screen. The Nutcracker invites audiences of all ages on a magical journey, through a world of adventure as Marie's Nutcracker doll magically transforms into a prince, complete with dancing snowflakes and dolls that have come to life, accompanied by Tchaikovsky's beloved score. Presented by The Bolshoi Ballet, an internationally renowned classical ballet company, founded in 1776, and based at the Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow, Russia.
On Thursday, December 26 at 2pm, MET in HD: Madama Butterfly, come and enjoy one of the best-loved operas of all times. Anthony Minghella's vividly cinematic staging returns to cinemas, featuring soprano Hui He in the devastating title role.

On Friday, December 27 at 7pm, watch a celebration of ski and snowboard culture with Teton Gravity Research: Winterland. Today's mountain athletes can only stand as tall as those who came before, the legends of the past who followed their own path and passion. This story of adventure is far from over, as a new crop of modern-day pioneers are eager to etch their names in the annals of history. The technology and style might evolve, but the rush, excitement, and pure fun remain eternal, bonding past, present, and future riders. The film will follow these individuals as they leave their own mark on fabled locations.
