Come watch one of Mark Morris Dance Group’s most beloved performance this holiday season!

Every show is a representation of E.T.A. Hoffmann’s original story from the straitlaced 1890s to the swinging 70s, with raucous parties, clanking boots, whimsical costumes, and a Waltz of the Snowflakes as it continues to preserve the Christmas tradition.

This Broadway version of The Nutcracker is based on the comic book art of Charles Burns and featuring Tchaikovsky’s complete original score, performed live by the 53-piece MMDG Music Ensemble, Morris’ lyrical, modern retelling playfully preserves the warm spirit of an essential holiday tradition.

This year the Hard Nut celebrates its 28th anniversary. It debuted on 12 January 1991 at the Théâtre Royal de la Monnaie in Brussels.
