As New York City Ballet continues to prioritize the health and well-being of our patrons, artists, staff, and the community at large, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020-21 Season and annual performances of George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker®.
Education programs held during this time are either postponed or offered remotely.
Join NYCB docents 20 minutes before the start of the performance on select dates for an informal discussion.
Offering background information about the ballets on the program and insights about the music and choreographic process. During intermissions, the docents will be available for questions and further discussion. These "First Position" introductions draw on a wealth of knowledge, tradition, and experience in an easy question-and-answer format.
Appropriate for all ages.
Free with valid performance ticket for select dates
