The main entrance to the theater is on 68 Street. Several patrons, me included, came along 69 St. And had difficulty finding the entrance. None of the passersby knew where I theater was even though it is only half a block away! Very New York!

There is a nice restaurant on 6th just off Madison Avenue where I dined at an outdoor table before the show. I didn't see any other restaurants in the area, but there may be some on Lexington.

Quotes & Highlights

  • “The Patrelle Yorkville Nutcracker, set in a bygone New York, appeals to the tourist in me: it’s so full of New York and American detail (even Theodore Roosevelt makes an appearance) that I wanted to watch it again to notice more of what it tells of local history.”—The New York Times


The production runs two hours, including one intermission.

About the Ticket Supplier: Dances Patrelle

Dances Patrelle (dP) is a dynamic professional ballet company celebrating their 25th season! dP presents two annual seasons in New York — the timeless holiday tradition, The Yorkville Nutcracker, and a spring repertory season.

Francis 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 Romeo and Juliet, 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.

Known for attracting the great talent of each generation, Dances Patrelle is pleased to count ballet stars Marcelo Gomes, Maria Riccetto, Donald Williams, Lourdes Lopez, Jock Soto, Merrill Ashley and prima ballerina Cynthia Gregory among its past and present dancers.

For 25 seasons, Dances Patrelle has tapped into the human experience, connecting intimately with the audience and continuously reinventing dramatic dance.
