There’s no place like New York City during the holidays — and no production celebrates the season like George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker® at Lincoln Center. For 65 years, New York City Ballet has brought this timeless tale to life, complete with a perennially adored cast of characters, delightfully vibrant costumes, and a magnificent tree that never ceases to awe. Plan to swap the cold of winter for the warmth of this cherished classic, and book your trip to the world of The Nutcracker —a joyous journey awaits.
