NYCB Vol. 9 No. 50 - Nutcracker

Updated: Mar 29

(50/50) We've made it! Congratulation to the dancers, musicians, artistic staff, backstage staff, and front of house staff for successfully completing a run of 50 Nutcracker performances! I hope you all enjoyed this third year of my historical Nutcracker posts which accompany each performance on the NYCB stage.

This has been a self-funded labor of love that I prepare for year-round by collecting photos and anecdotes as I come across them in my research during other seasons. If you feel so inclined, you can support my work by contributing to my "tip jar" which can be found at the link in my bio. It works similar to Venmo and your support will help me continue this project throughout the 75th Anniversary season. Your donations help me purchase books and other research materials that I then make available to you through curated posts. Thank you for being here!

Stay tuned this week as I celebrate the 90th Anniversary of @sab_nyc (January 2nd) with a whole week of posts commemorating its history!
