Event description: New York Theatre Ballet (NYTB) returns for a second season of Keith Michael's "Nutcracker," an enchanting holiday ballet. This one-hour ballet is perfect for children ages 3-10, with clever choreography sophisticated enough for the most discerning parent.

This classic retelling of the Nutcracker begins on Christmas Eve with toymaker Drosselmeyer's arrival carrying an endearing nutcracker doll, and includes a lively mouse queen with a 18-foot-tail, a journey through the Land of Snow and, of course, a sweet romance between a young woman and her nutcracker prince. 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. The Nutcracker is set in Art Nouveau style circa 1907 featuring 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 Nolan.
