FAQ

Moscow Ballet’s Usual Venue In Easton: The State Theatre

This year, presented by State Theatre, Easton PA: Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker is streaming directly to your living room! In a regular year Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker is performed at their venue. Originally opened in 1910 as the Neumeyer Theatre, the venue underwent several name changes before opening as the State Theatre in 1930. The theater once hosted Vaudeville performances and silent films, but the development of talking pictures prompted the need for a larger movie screen as well as new equipment for stereophonic sound, both of which were installed.

The State Theatre began presenting rock concerts during the 1960s and 1970s. Under threats of demolition in the early 1980s, a group of citizens rallied together to raise money for building renovations, which were completed in 1990. Today, the State Theatre hosts musicians, comedians, dance performances, stage productions, and more.
