About The Nutcracker:
Many ballet companies throughout the country offer performances of The Nutcracker during the holiday season, but none do it quite like New York City Ballet. The world-renowned ballet company has some of the best dancers on the globe, and Balanchine’s take on this holiday favorite is truly unforgettable.
One of the New York City Ballet’s principal dancers, Chase Finlay, got his start in dance thanks to a performance of The Nutcracker. His parents took him to see a performance when he was a toddler. By the time the show was over, Finlay wanted to know if he could learn to dance like that –and he did.
In some families, a visit to New York City to see The Nutcracker is a holiday tradition. Once you see it for the first time, you’ll see why it has captured the hearts of so many people of all ages. It’s not just the amazing dancers. The costumes, the incredible sets, and the Balanchine choreography all work together to make this one of the most exciting NYC Events of the season.
It’s recommended that you reserve your tickets ahead of your visit as some dates may sell out in advance. Tickets can be purchased online or at the theatre’s box office. You can read about other NY Things to Do during your stay by browsing our New York City Activities Guide.
