Sugarplums Everywhere!

Here come the Nutcrackers, in endless variety.

  1. 1. New York City Ballet

    November 24 to December 30 at the New York State Theater

    The gold standard: Balanchine’s indestructible Nutcracker uses the entire company, lots of kids from the School of American Ballet, and a one-ton tree.

  2. 2. Nutcracker in the Lower

    November 25 to December 2 at Abrons Arts Center

    This much-updated version, with modern, African, and salsa dance alongside ballet, has itself become a downtown tradition.

  3. 3. Moscow Classical Ballet

    November 26 at Lehman Center for the Performing Arts

    The Russian troupe’s new production takes place in the “Land of Peace and Harmony.”
