Wednesday, December 27, 2017
The whole family is invited to watch a holiday classic: "George Balanchine's The Nutcracker," presented on the video wall with surround sound in the Bennett Room. Experience the wonder of New York City Ballet's iconic holiday classic on the big screen. In "George Balanchine's The Nutcracker," Tchaikovsky's beloved melodies transport the young and young-at-heart to a magical world where mischievous mice besiege a battalion of toy soldiers, and an onstage blizzard leads to an enchanted Land of Sweets. Balanchine's stunning choreography shines amidst awe-inspiring set pieces, ornate costumes, and grand one-of-a-kind visual effects, like the one-ton Christmas tree that grows to an astonishing 40 feet. The New York City Ballet's beloved production has been performed in New York City every year since its premiere on February 2, 1954. This film is not rated and runs 110 minutes.
