NYCB The Nutcracker Live-streamed at the movies TONIGHT 6PM Eastern.
NYCB The Nutcracker Live from Lincoln Center PBS Wednesday night at 8PM.
San Francisco Ballet's The Little Mermaid on Great Performances PBS Friday night at 9PM. It repeats on Christmas Day.
Also, ABT opens its BAM run of The Nutcracker by Alexei Ratmansky on Wednesday with Veronika Part and Marcelo Gomes in the leads. So far the only two performances that are approaching sold out are the Wednesday and Saturday matinee performances with Veronika and Marcelo. Buy now or live to regret missing them.
REMINDER: Sarah Lane and Joseph Gorak will debut as the leads in The Nutcracker on Wednesday, December 21st at 2PM and on New Year's Eve afternoon at 2PM. How often do we get to see Sarah Lane in a full length lead role - almost never. It seems Ratmansky appreciates her even if McKenzie doesn't. See Sarah's debut with the remarkable soon-to-blast-off Joe Gorak or forever regret it. People are going to be talking about this debut for a long time to come.
