George Balanchine's The Nutcracker
Highlights of the New York City Ballet's annual confection include a one-ton Christmas tree that grows from 12 to 40 feet, an onstage snowstorm, and hundreds of elaborate costumes, including one for Mother Ginger that measures nine feet wide and weighs 85 pounds!
The production’s grand finale involves one million watts of lighting, the most used in any New York City Ballet production.
