A GELSEY KIRKLAND BALLET and MICHAEL CHERNOV PRODUCTION
You have five opportunities to see the Gelsey Kirkland Academy bring their version of the perennial holiday classic to the Schimmel Theatre. Set to Tchaikovsky’s iconic and emotional score, The Nutcracker is a richly symbolic story about a young girl’s journey through fear and darkness to the light of love, guided by her godfather, Drosselmeyer. Marie’s transformation from child to princess to marriage with the ideal prince begins with an unlikely gift from her godfather at a Christmas Eve party: an ugly doll that cracks hard nuts. Follow Marie as she is menaced by dark forces and ultimately rescued by the Nutcracker who leads her up the Christmas tree into the land of snow and beyond…into his kingdom.
Gelsey Kirkland Academy of Classical Ballet was founded in 2010 by Chernov and Gelsey Kirkland, who was invited by George Balanchine to join the New York City Ballet, and would go on to create leading roles in many of his ballets.
Plus…Pace students have access to $5 student balcony tickets available for advance purchase in person at the box office.
