The Lincoln Center presents the timeless holiday classic
There are certain events that make it clear the Christmas season is upon us. Lights on houses, holiday music in all the stores, an endless number of holiday shows on TV. But one of the timeless classics is ballet’s “The Nutcracker.”
From its first performance at the Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg, Russia in 1892, the music of Tchaikovsky combined with the ballet originally choreographed by Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov, has become a holiday tradition.
And now you can see the New York City Ballet’s famously extravagant staging with George Balanchine’s legendary choreography—on the big screen. In addition, you will be treated to a behind-the-scenes look at the company and exclusive interviews with the artists.
