ABT's The Nutcracker

Regional Dance Family Regional — 

Magical toy soldiers, sparkling fairies, mischievous mice, and all the enchanting inhabitants of E.T.A. Hoffmann’s whimsical world descend upon BAM this December for the world premiere of The Nutcracker, presented by the renowned American Ballet Theatre and choreographed by ABT artist-in-residence Alexei Ratmansky.

Performed with a live orchestra, together with extraordinary sets and costumes by Tony Award-winner Richard Hudson (The Lion King), Ratmansky’s new version of Tchaikovsky’s classic unites more than 100 superb performers for a sublime retelling of the beloved story. Join the young Clara and her famous wooden prince for the sweetest of all family holiday dreams.
