Tuesday, December 12th at 6 pm for all ages
Experience the wonder of New York City Ballet’s iconic holiday classic on the big screen. In George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker®, Tchaikovsky’s beloved melodies transport the young and the young at heart to a magical world where mischievous mice besiege a battalion of toy soldiers, and an onstage blizzard leads to an enchanted Land of Sweets. Balachine’s stunning choreography shines amidst awe-inspiring set pieces, ornate costumes, and grand one-of-a-kind visual effects, like the one-ton Christmas tree that grows to an astonishing 40 feet. Recorded December 14, 2011 at the David H. Koch Theater. Light refreshments will be served.
