Francis Patrelle's Holiday Classic, "The Yorkville Nutcracker," returns for its 26th Season!


Enjoy a magical tour of 1895 New York City with Dances Patrelle. Your journey begins with a Christmas Eve party at Gracie Mansion attended by dignitaries from around the world - including our new police commissioner, Theodore Roosevelt. Thrill as you behold a battle with life-sized mice! Then go for a bracing midnight skate on the ponds of Cental Park. Finally, take a sleigh-ride to the Grand Conservatory of the Bronx Botanical Gardens in time for a beautiful sunrise buffet of sweets, hosted by the Sugar-Plum Fairy. New York City Ballet's Miriam Miller and Jared Angle lead the Dances Patrelle cast in this magical and whirlwind seasonal confection, with rich delights for ballet lovers of every age.

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.
