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. New York City Ballet’s famously extravagant staging features Balanchine’s stunning choreography amidst awe inspiring set pieces, ornate costumes and grand one-of-a-kind visual effects, like the Christmas tree that grows to an astonishing 40 feet high.
