The Yorkville Nutcracker, set in 1895, includes lavish sets and costumes which takes the audience on a tour through Olde New York’s most beloved landmarks, including a holiday party at Gracie Mansion, dancing at the Crystal Palace in the New York Botanical Garden, and skating in Central Park. Additionally, The Yorkville Nutcracker provides an opportunity for young dancers to dance alongside professional artists. This year, we are thrilled to have Abi Stafford and Adrian Danchig-Waring, both Principal Dancers with New York City Ballet, returing as our Sugar Plum and Cavalier. Other dancers include John-Mark Owen and Julie Voshell dancing the Arabian Divertissement and Matthew Dibble, Justin Peck, Therese Wendler and Nadezhda Vostrikov alternating as the Snow King and Queen.
