NYC Ballet presents George Balanchine's The Nutcracker®

Experience the wonder of New York City Ballet’s iconic holiday classic on the big screen at Damariscotta’s Lincoln Theater on Sunday December 16 at 2 PM. 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, like the one-ton Christmas tree that grows to an astonishing 40 feet.

This holiday screening marks the first of four "Lincoln Center at the Movies: Great American Dance” programs that will be shown at Lincoln Theater on various Sundays at 2 PM. The others include Ballet Hispanico’s CARMEN.macquia and Club Havana on January 13, 2019 ; San Francisco Ballet’s Romeo and Juliet on February 10, 2019, and the Alvin Ailey Dance Theater’s Chroma, Grace, Takademe, Revelations on March 10, 2019.
