The Nutcracker is a beloved holiday tradition that we’ve largely missed out on this year, at least in person. Last year was the final year to see Atlanta Ballet’s version of The Nutcracker at the Fabulous Fox Theatre. It was scheduled to move to the Cobb Energy Center this year.
The New Paltz Ballet Theatre is offering a FREE stream of this iconic holiday performance, filmed in 2019.
The ballet premieres on its YouTube channel on Christmas Eve, December 24th, at 7 p.m.
It will be available to watch at any time after the premiere, through January 1, 2021.
From the Facebook event page:
The New Paltz Ballet Theatre’s 22nd season presenting this classic holiday event featuring dancers from the New York City Ballet.
Peter and Lisa Naumann, co-directors of the NPBT, have brought many fine regional artists together to create this beautiful production. Dancers, designers, and technicians have all contributed to make this Nutcracker a visual delight.
Come along with Marie as she dreams of a fierce battle between giant mice and toy soldiers followed by a magical journey through the Land of Snow to the Kingdom of Sweets. This show is just what you’ll need to put you in the mood for the holidays!! This time Virtually!
