The Nutcracker Family Benefit

December 11, 2021

Join Co-Chairs Megan Brodsky, Shannon Caspersen, Rebecca Hessel Cohen, Marcella Guarino Hymowitz, and Olivia Wassenaar as we return to an in-person celebration of the magical 2021 Nutcracker Family Benefit on Saturday, December 11.

You and your family will be mesmerized by the matinee performance of George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker ® followed by a festive holiday party on the Promenade of the David H. Koch Theater. This year, with safety in mind, plans are underway for a celebration that includes lots of Nutcracker-themed activities and surprises for all ages.

Funds raised at the event benefit New York City Ballet and its Education Programs, as well as the School of American Ballet’s Scholarship Fund. Your support allows us to continue offering these important programs making this beautiful art form accessible to children of all ages and backgrounds. We hope you will share in this enchanting afternoon, and should you reserve your tickets by Friday, October 29, your generosity will be recognized on the event invitation.
