The Nutcracker
World Financial Center Winter Garden (200 Vesey St., Manhattan)
12:30pm & 6pm

Bursting with energy and excitement, the NYTB’s The Nutcracker recasts Marie, the tale’s child protagonist, as a young woman who gets to dance with her Nutcracker Prince instead of observing most of the action from upstage. Along with imaginative new flourishes, audiences can look forward to such iconic set pieces as the lively mouse battle at midnight, the journey through the Land of Snow, and the dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy and Her Cavalier.
