New York City Ballet George Balanchine's The Nutcracker

New York City Ballet’s production of Balanchine’s iconic piece remains faithful to the 1954 original but never gets old. The stagecraft is magical: Along with a one-ton Christmas tree that grows from 12 to 40 feet high, there’s an onstage snowstorm of blizzardlike proportions and a nine-foot-wide Mother Ginger (her skirt, that is). David H. Koch Theater (at Lincoln Center), 20 Lincoln Center Plaza at 63rd St (212-496-0600, nycballet.com). Dates and times vary; $29–$140. Nov 29–Jan 4.
