This

Yorkville Nutcracker, 
set in 1895, which includes lavish
sets and costumes and takes the audience on a tour through Olde New
York's most beloved landmarks, including a holiday party at Gracie
Mansion, dancing at the Crystal Palace in the New York Botanical
Garden, and skating in Central Park. The Yorkville
Nutcracker 
provides an opportunity for young dancers to
dance alongside professional artists. Courtesy of New York City
Ballet, Abi Stafford will return as the Sugar Plum Fairy with

Dances
Patrelle (dP) is a dynamic professional ballet company celebratingits
27th season! dP presents two annual seasons in New York - the
timeless holiday tradition, The Yorkville Nutcracker, and
a spring repertory season featuring world premieres and classic
Patrelle favorites. Mr. Patrelle's body of work includes over 50
original ballets choreographed for Dances Patrelle, and spans an
incredibly wide range of styles, from his beloved American Songbook
collection, to such contemporary classics as Madame
X,Macbeth 
and Rhapsody in Blue. Heralded by Lynn
Garafola in Dance Magazine as a choreographer with
"a personal vision...classical because it is rooted in metaphor
and symbolic language [and] populist because of its legibility and
broad cultural resonance," Patrelle has also cultivated a
long-time collaboration with composer Patrick Soluri, commissioning
four original scores including 2009's Murder at the
Masque 
for dP's 20th Anniversary. Known for attracting the
great talent of each generation, Dances Patrelle is pleased to count
ballet stars such as Marcelo Gomes, Jenifer Ringer,
Donald Williams, Lourdes Lopez, and Cynthia Gregory among its
dancers. For 26 seasons, Dances Patrelle has tapped into
the human experience, connecting intimately with the audience and
continuously reinventing dramatic dance. In 2013, the
company was named the resident ballet company of the Kaatsbaan
International Dance Center.

 

"In
Francis Patrelle's ballets, the characters come alive. His
choreography is full of heart and soul." - Cynthia
Gregory, Prima Ballerina
