The premier of Ariel Rose's heartwarming new documentary about the history of Francis Patrelle’s, The Yorkville Nutcracker. It is about the creation, design, and choreography of The Yorkville Nutcracker, but most of all it's about the generations of dancers, young and not so young, who have made our holiday tradition so special. It includes interviews and footage from more than two decades of The Yorkville Nutcracker. Thousands of dancers have created twenty-five years of holiday magic. You may see people you know! You may even see yourself!
The Patrelle Yorkville Nutcracker, set in a bygone New York, appeals to the tourist in me: it’s so full of New York and American detail (even Theodore Roosevelt makes an appearance) that I wanted to watch it again to notice more of what it tells of local history.
