New York City Ballet’s Christmas Show

The New York City Ballet performs The Nutcracker every year during the Christmas season. If you’re in New York during this time, you will definitely catch the festive bug when you visit this magical family show. The Nutcracker set around a Christmas tree, tells the story of little Clara and the Nutcracker she receives as a Christmas gift. At night this nutcracker, along with the other gifts under the Christmas tree, magically come to life. Consequently, a conflict ensues between the gingerbread soldiers and some hungry mice.

A visit to The New York City Ballet guarantees a magical afternoon or evening with their performance of this well-loved ballet. No less than 90 dancers will appear on stage, in addition to 50 young dancers from The School of American Ballet. Young and old will no doubt be impressed by this delightful Christmas show!
