New York Theatre Ballet (NYTB) returns for a third year of Keith Michael's The Nutcracker, an enchanting holiday ballet.

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 Resident Costume Designer of the Metropolitan Opera, Sylvia Nolan.
