Lunch with Lincoln Center The Nutcracker

December 14, 2016 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

For the first in our new program “Lunch with Lincoln Center” we present a holiday classic the New York City Ballet’s production of George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker® projected on a big screen in the Buchanan Auditorium.

Pack a lunch and come to the Buchanan Auditorium where the program will begin at 1pm.

Tchaikovsky’s beloved melodies transport the young and young at heart to a magical world where mischievous mice besiege a battalion of toy soldiers, and an onstage blizzard leads to an enchanted Land of Sweets. In the New York City Ballet’s famously extravagant staging, Balanchine’s stunning choreography shines amidst awe-inspiring set pieces, ornate costumes, and grand one-of-a-kind visual effects, like the one-ton Christmas tree that grows to an astonishing 40 feet.
