The Nutcracker at Brookfield Place

The Nutcracker at Brookfield Place


NYTB kicks off the holiday season with 4 performances of Keith Michael's The Nutcracker in the Winter Garden at Brookfield Place! Advanced registration is required to attend the performances. Capacity permitting, walk-ins may be accommodated. 

From clockwork imps to a luminous owl that flies above the audience, mice dressed in polka dots and dancers dancing with huge chopsticks, this timeless, re-imagined classic bursts with energy and excitement. This holiday ballet, danced to Tchaikovsky’s beloved score, is set in Art Nouveau style circa 1907 with innovative choreography by long-time NYTB choreographer, Keith Michael; set design by Gillian Bradshaw-Smith; and costumes by Resident Costume Designer of the Metropolitan Opera, Sylvia Taalsohn Nolan.

Pre-performances mini classes!
Take a spin with New York Theatre Ballet School! Bring your little ones to The Nutcracker and join us for a pre-performance mini class in the Winter Garden to inspire your child with the joy of dance. Learn basic movements and then try to spot them on stage!

Classes are ten minutes each and begin two hours before the performance start. Open to ages 5-8 with no previous experience or special attire required.

Classes will be located on the performance circle in the Winter Garden. Admission is first-come, first-served.
