Description: For the 18th year, Dances Patrelle presents this unique rendition of Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky's holiday classic The Nutcracker. Set in 1895, The Yorkville Nutcracker takes the audience on an action-packed tour of Olde New York's most beloved landmarks, including a holiday party at Gracie Mansion, dancing at the Crystal Palace in the New York Botanical Garden, and ice-skating in Central Park. The show features young dancers from around New York City in lavish sets and costumes, dancing alongside New York City Ballet principals Jenifer Ringer and Jared Angle as the Sugar Plum Fairy and her Cavalier.
