Meet back at Lincoln Center for the 1:00 pm performance of George Balanchine's The Nutcracker as Tschaikovsky's iconic score whisks you away on a heart warming adventure through the eyes of the pint-sized heroine Marie on her journey to a fantastical land made entirely of candy. Whether it is a family tradition or a once-in-a-lifetime visit, your experience of this glittering classical ballet will stay with you forever and warm your spirit. From the moment the lights dim, you will be transported to a magical place filled with adorable children, marching toy soldiers, a glowing one-ton Christmas tree that seemingly grows forever, mischievous mice, crystalline waltzing snowflakes, the Land of Sweets and some of the most breathtaking costumes, sets and dancing on earth. The Nutcracker will warm your heart, from the scurry of giant mice, the enormous Christmas tree, waltzing snowflakes, decadent Land of Sweets....It's no wonder why the Nutcracker has become a holiday season "must see" for so many!
