There are many versions of Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker, but one of the most lavish productions around is the one by Dances Patrelle. With a unique, “olde New York” theme, set at the turn of the century, this show is both a love letter to the city and a dazzling version of the classic ballet, with all the bells and whistles: picture-perfect dance moves, unforgettable sets and gorgeous costumes. As an added bonus: the uber-talented kids steal the show each year. It is an absolute delight and recommended for people of all ages. And it’s coming up soon – don’t miss the Yorkville Nutcracker by Dances Patrelle!
Enjoy a magical tour of 1895 New York City with Dances Patrelle. Your journey begins with a Christmas Eve party at Gracie Mansion attended by dignitaries from around the world – including our new police commissioner, Theodore Roosevelt. Thrill as you behold a battle with life-sized mice! Then go for a bracing midnight skate on the ponds of Central Park. Finally, take a sleigh-ride to the Grand Conservatory of the Bronx Botanical Gardens in time for a beautiful sunrise buffet of sweets, hosted by the Sugar-Plum Fairy. New York City Ballet’s Miriam Miller and Tyler Angle lead the Dances Patrelle cast in this magical and whirlwind seasonal confection, with rich delights for ballet lovers of every age.
