New York City Ballet's The Nutcracker Tickets

Ever since its premiere back in 1892, The Nutcracker has been charming audiences across the globe and holds a special place in the hearts of ballet fans. Seeing this world famous spectacle and hearing Tchaikovsky's glorious score is sure to be a highlight of your visit to New York.

As the clock chimes midnight, a brave young girl turns the tide in a battle between toy soldiers and mischievous mice, and a blizzard of ballerinas reveals a wonderful world of confection. Welcome to The Nutcracker!

Based on the Alexandre Dumas pere version of E.T.A. Hoffmann's tale, The Nutcracker and the Mouse King (1816), this heart-warming musical demands a full-scale production.

Hence 90 dancers, 62 musicians, 40 stagehands and more than 125 children, in two alternating casts, from the New York Ballet Company joining forces to make each performance as magical as possible.

Be captivated by the lure of Tschaikovsky's music, Balanchine's choreography, Karinska's sumptuous costumes, and Rouben Ter-Arutunian's magical sets.
