NYC Ballet Presents The Nutcracker Description

NYC Ballet Presents The Nutcracker - Ballet in New York.

The New York City Ballet Company’s annual performance of The Nutcracker at the Lincoln Center transports audiences to a magical land just in time for the holidays.

The performance, choreographed by the company’s legendary founder, George Balanchine, features 90 dancers and a live orchestra with 62 magicians performing original music by Tschaikovsky.

The Nutcracker depicts the story of a young girl and a wooden nutcracker as it comes to life and transforms into a prince on Christmas Eve. The prince takes the young girl to a fairytale Land of the Sweets where the audience sees characters like Drosselmeier, the Snow Queen, the Dewdrop Fairy, and the Sugar Plum Fairy as they jeté, battement, and pirouette across the stage.

The New York City Ballet’s Nutcracker is a holiday classic that captivates audiences with elaborate costumes, pas de deux sequences, and sets that truly capture the magic of the story.

Tickets to this must-see wintertime spectacle range from $29 to $225.
