Nutcracker Family Benefit is unlike any other family benefit event. You and your family will be mesmerized by the matinee performance of George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker® followed by an afternoon of crafts, activities, and surprise guests on the promenade of the David H. Koch Theater! With safety in mind, attendees and staff will remain masked during the performance and party. Sweet treats will be provided to each guest upon departure; additional refreshments will be available outside on the terrace during the party and at the concessions bar for purchase during intermission.

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.

By completing a purchase, you agree to acknowledge and comply with our COVID-19 policies outlined on the Your Safety page.
