George Balanchine's The Nutcracker
November 23–December 30
It's likely you already know the story—and that this production is the heart of New York City's year-end holiday season. This glittering classic, performed annually by the New York City Ballet since 1954, has become one of the City's signature family-friendly traditions. Expect to warm your spirit with visions of the Sugarplum Fairy, the Snow Queen and, naturally, the Nutcracker.
