New York Theatre Ballet presents "The Nutcracker" after 2-year absence
New York Theatre Ballet
New York Theatre Ballet (NYTB) returns to Florence Gould Hall after a two-year absence with seven performances of its enchanting production of The Nutcracker, December 10-12.
The streamlined retelling of this timeless holiday classic, imaginatively choreographed by Keith Michael, is part of NYTB’s Once Upon a Ballet series, geared to young children, ages 3+. Set in turn-of-the-century Art Nouveau style and danced to Tchaikovsky’s beloved score, the hour-long production featuring a large, time-bending clock, a luminous owl that flies above the audience, and dancers wielding enormous chopsticks, is sure to delight audiences young and old alike. The set is designed by Gillian Bradshaw-Smith, and costumes are designed by Sylvia Taalsohn Nolan who is Resident Costume Designer at the Metropolitan Opera.
Tickets are $30 for adults and $17 for children 12 & under and are on sale at Ticketmaster.
