Nutcracker Family Benefit

Nutcracker Family Benefit is unlike any other family benefit event. On Saturday, December 9, you and your family will be mesmerized by the matinee performance of George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker® followed by an afternoon filled with surprises on the promenade of the David H. Koch Theater! Most importantly, the Benefit helps raise vital funds for New York City Ballet and its Education Programs, as well as the School of American Ballet’s Scholarship Fund. Your support allows us to continue offering these important programs that make this beautiful art form accessible to children of all ages and backgrounds.
