Nutcracker Vol 1. No. 1

Updated: Jan 28

(1/50) On occasion I’ve found myself down the rabbit hole of the digital archives of @nypl_lpa @jeromerobbinsdancedivision. I think I’ll share some of my favorites. Maybe one post for every show of the season? We’ll start with some pics from the original cast of George Balanchine's The Nutcracker in 1954. I hope you see something you’ve never seen before! I’ve found some real gems…
