beautiful score fills the air, join young Clara for a dreamlike journey amid colorful, larger-than-life
scenery, magical toy soldiers, mischievous mice, sparkling snowflakes,
and a glittering Christmas tree! With an impressive cast of over
100 performers, ABT’s acclaimed production of The Nutcracker
features sets and costumes by Richard Hudson (Tony®-Award-winner
for The Lion King set designs) with choreography by ABT’s
Artist in Residence, Alexei Ratmansky.

you’re four or ninety-four!

AGE GUIDELINES FOR CHILDREN
American Ballet Theatre welcomes children and families to experience
the magic of classical ballet during its performances of The
Nutcracker. While parents should use their discretion based
on the maturity level of their children, ABT recommends
that children be at least 4 years of age to attend The Nutcracker.
In determining if your child should attend ABT, it is important
to know the child must be able to sit quietly and not disrupt the
performance for other patrons. If a child becomes disruptive during
a performance, BAM’s ushers will require the child and the
accompanying adult to leave the auditorium to watch the remainder
of the performance on a video monitor in the Natman room without
refund of the ticket purchase. All attendees, regardless of age
from infant to adult, must have a ticket to enter BAM and must sit
in the seat indicated on the ticket.
ABT is committed to honoring its performance calendar for The
Nutcracker engagement at BAM, and it is ABT’s policy not to
cancel performances due to weather conditions. If patrons cannot
attend a performance, for whatever reason, they may donate the tickets
back to the Company only by calling BAM Ticket Services at 718.636.4100
prior to the performance to receive a tax-receipt.
Ticket holders are responsible for noting date and time on their
tickets. Unfortunately, ABT is not responsible if the performance
is missed by ticket holders for any reason, including inclement
weather, traffic conditions, plane cancellations or late arrivals,
personal or family illness or competing events. All ticket sales
are final and not subject to exchange.
Casts and prices are subject to change.
