The Magical Nutcracker Returns!
This holiday season take your children to a ballet they will love: the enchanting hour-long version of The Nutcracker, presented by New York Theatre Ballet. Youngsters feel like they are part of the show from the moment Uncle Drosselmeyer steps on stage and greets them to the grand finale!
The Nutcracker is one of the USA's favorite Christmas events, and one of the most performed ballets in the world! An annual performance by your local ballet company is the perfect way to welcome in Christmas with the whole family.
What is The Nutcracker about?
One snowy Christmas Eve, at a great townhouse where a party is in full swing, local magician Herr Drosselmeyer arrives with gifts for the children, including a wooden nutcracker for Clara, the oldest child. When the clock strikes twelve an adventure begins and the Nutcracker comes to life, leading our heroine Clara into a war between mice and tin soldiers, and into the enchanted Land of Sweets where a festival awaits them.
