Lincoln Center at the Movies: New York City Ballet in George Balanchine's The Nutcracker™
New York City Ballet
Experience the wonder of this iconic production of a 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. In the New York City Ballet’s famously extravagant staging, 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.
