Marching toy soldiers, waltzing snowflakes, mischievous mice and Tchaikovsky's unforgettable score are quintessential hallmarks of the holidays. Named a New York Times 2015 Critic's Pick, the 70-member Gelsey Kirkland Ballet's production of The Nutcracker features opulent sets and costumes and dancers of all ages to bring to life this holiday classic for the whole family. The story follows a young girl who dreams her grandfather's gift, a wooden nutcracker doll, comes to life and whisks her away on an adventure as they battle the wicked Mouse King and journey through an enchanted forest of snow. Co-artistic director of the company Gelsey Kirkland knows how to mount a production of this perennial favorite; it was her performance in Mikhail Baryshnikov's 1977 televised production of The Nutcracker that first brought her wide public acclaim and led to her becoming one of the most famous ballerinas of the 20th century.
