New York Theatre Ballet Presents The Nutcracker
Sugarplums, Snowflakes, and Waltzing Flowers will take the stage for seven performances of New York Theatre Ballet’s (NYTB) The Nutcracker, Friday, December 9, Saturday, December 10 and Sunday, December 11 at Florence Gould Hall in New York City.
New York Theatre Ballet’s streamlined retelling of The Nutcracker, 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 features a large, time-bending clock, a luminous owl that flies above the audience, and the enchanting and cherished characters that audiences have delighted in year after year. NYTB’s The Nutcracker features set designs by Gillian Bradshaw-Smith, and costumes by Sylvia Taalsohn Nolan, Resident Costume Designer for the Metropolitan Opera.
Performances of The Nutcracker at Florence Gould Hall (55 East 59th Street) are scheduled for Friday, December 9 at 6:30pm; Saturday, December 10 at 11:00am, 1:00pm and 3:30pm; and Sunday, December 11 at 11:00am, 1:00pm and 3:30pm. Tickets, priced at $35 for adults and $25 for children 12 and under, are on sale now at the Florence Gould Hall box office and at Ticketmaster
