NYC Nutcrackers: where to get your ‘Nutcracker’ fix this season

‘The Nutcracker’ has been a holiday classic since George Balanchine’s ballet was staged to Tchaikovsky’s composition in the 1960s.

Since then, New Yorkers have adopted new forms of dance, classical and modern, new settings, casts and costumes to make ‘The Nutcracker’ their own.

Check out some of the city’s most unique performances of the cherished ballet.
