My daughter who is just 2 and a half absolutely loved the show, and sat in her own seat about 70% of the time, on my lap 20% or the time and danced like a ballerina the rest of the time. At the beginning they gave a small presentation on lighting and costume design and their were tons of ohhs and ahhs from the audience. The show is really perfect for your littles to introduce them to the Nutcracker and theater etiquette. She danced like the ballerinas in Central Park after the show.   Nutcracker NYC

New York Theatre Ballet (NYTB) returns for a fifth year of Keith Michael’s The Nutcracker, an enchanting holiday ballet. 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. This holiday ballet, danced to Tchaikovsky’s beloved score, is set in Art Nouveau style circa 1907 with innovative choreography by long-time NYTB choreographer, Keith Michael, set design by Gillian Bradshaw-Smith, and costumes by Metropolitan Opera’s Resident Costume Designer Sylvia Taalsohn Nolan. This one-hour ballet is perfect for ages 3 and up!
