Keith Michaelâs The Nutcracker

Keith Michael’s The Nutcracker

Read what the critics have to say about Keith Michael’s The Nutcracker

“An appealing surprise turned up at the small but always intelligent and appealing New York Theatre Ballet…. Keith Michael has replaced his own Nutcracker, performed from 1985-2010, with a new version and it’s a honey…It’s completely ingenious the way he deploys the pretty cut-out scenery (by Gillian Bradshaw-Smith) and the equally charming costumes (by Sylvia Taalsohn Nolan), and it’s extraordinary the way he achieves so much with so small an ensemble. What’s more, the choreography is musical and inventive-and fun.  The atmosphere is relaxed and rowdy, the experience a happy one. Don’t forget this one at Nutcracker time next year!” – Robert Gottlieb, The New York Observer

We look forward to welcoming you to this endearing holiday ballet. Join us as Uncle Drosselmeyer presents Marie with a magical Nutcracker doll.
