New York City Ballet Presents "The Nutcracker"


The Nutcracker Suite, the enchanting celebration of dancing and dreaming, is the perfect way to kick off the holiday season. Join sweet Clara and the mysterious Drosselmeyer as the beautiful music of Tchaikovsky guides them through a wintry world brought to life by the magic of Christmas. Performed by the New York City Ballet (NYCB), this vivid interpretation of George Balanchine's classic is full of life-size dancing dolls, soldiers, mice and, of course, the beloved Nutcracker prince.
This matinee performance will be preceded by "Meet the Dancer," a special 45-minute discussion and backstage tour hosted by an NYCB corps member. Highlights include insights into the life of a dancer, background on the performance, and the opportunity to experience the breathtaking view of the auditorium from onstage. 
We now have seats in the theater's second Ring. The $130 ticket price includes seating, "Meet the Dancer," and all fees. Space is extremely limited. Smith Club members and non-members may bring family or friends as guests. Please note that participants must be at least 10 years old to attend the backstage tour.
