The Nutcracker on the big screen, by Lincoln Center Movies at New Canaan Library
December 10, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pmFree
New Canaan Library is pleased to present a special holiday treat, courtesy of Lincoln Center Movies. Experience the magic of New York City Ballet’s iconic The Nutcracker ballet on the big screen, Sunday, December 10 at 1 p.m. in the Adrian Lamb Room. Please register online at newcanaanlibrary.org.
In George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker, Tchaikovsky’s beloved melodies transport the young and young at heart to a magical world where mischievous mice besiege a battalion of toy soldiers, and an onstage blizzard leads to an enchanted Land of Sweets. Balanchine’s stunning choreography shines amidst awe-inspiring set pieces, ornate costumes, and grand one-of-a-kind visual effects, such as the magic Christmas tree that grows to an astonishing 40 feet.
The screening was recorded on December 14, 2011 at the David H. Koch Theatre, and is 1 hour and 40 minutes long.
