Choreography by Alexei Ratmansky
Music by Peter Ilyitch Tchaikovsky

Magical toy soldiers, sparkling snowflakes, mischievous mice, and all the enchanting inhabitants of E.T.A. Hoffmann's whimsical world return to BAM for the winter holidays in this acclaimed production of The Nutcracker, presented by the renowned American Ballet Theatre and choreographed by ABT Artist in Residence Alexei Ratmansky. Performed with a live orchestra, together with extraordinary sets and costumes by Tony Award-winner Richard Hudson (The Lion King), The Nutcracker is bound to be a treasured memory for years to come. It is no wonder The New York Times praised, "American Ballet Theatre has a production like no other, made with complete theatrical authority from first to last. The poetry of Alexei Ratmansky's vision is very striking. I'm impatient to see it again."
