One of New York City’s favorite holiday affairs, the Nutcracker Family Benefit helps raise critical funds for New York City Ballet and its education and outreach programs, in addition to the School of American Ballet's Scholarship Fund. A fun-filled family event, the Benefit begins with a matinee performance of George Balanchine's The Nutcracker® followed by a holiday party on the Promenade of the David H. Koch Theater, complete with dancers from the performance.
Help support the Company's excellence, launch new works, and keep performances affordable and accessible for new audiences.
