Tonight marks the world premiere of Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker at BAM in Brooklyn. With an impressive cast of 100 performers, American Ballet Theater's premiere production promises to mesmerize you with the all-new choreography and sets. We think it could be the production that hooks your children on ballet.
ABT is taking some risks with this production. They commissioned Alexei Ratmansky (Artist in Residence) to dream up an brand new ballet for this beloved classic. This debut marks the beginning of a 5-year partnership between ABT and BAM (that's a lot of acronyms). Glimpse incredible pictures of the production here:
