Live From Lincoln Center: George Balanchine's The Nutcracker

Live from Lincoln Center returns to the New York City Ballet for "George Balanchine's The Nutcracker." This is the production that is the heart of New York City's year-end holiday season. 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 glorious dancing on earth.
