Why See The Nutcracker?

The American Ballet Theatre's production of The Nutcracker is the stuff Holiday dreams are made of - marching toy soldiers, mischievous mice, twinkling snowflake and stunning special effects recreate E.T.A. Hoffman's world loved Christmas tale live on-stage for the whole family to treasure.

With choreography by ABT Artist in Residence, Alexei Ratmansky, and sets and costumes created by a Tony-winning designer (Richard Hudson, The Lion King), the American Ballet Theatre production of The Nutcracker at the BAM is a wonderful way to introduce young children to the magical world of ballet theatre and one you'll want to experience again and again.

This year sees celebrated soloist Misty Copeland perform in the production on the following performances only: Dec 14th evening, Dec 18th evening, and Dec 21st matinee.
