Pyotr Tchaikovsky’s “Nutcracker”

Classic ballet returns

Sugarplum fairies and mice kings leap and prance about at the Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts at Brooklyn College this December when the Colonial Nutcracker comes to town.

The holiday favorite, danced to Pyotr Tchaikovsky’s beautiful score, is set in wintry colonial Yorktown during the Revolutionary War. “Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy” and “Waltz of the Snowflakes,” featuring a red-coated mouse army and an enchanted nutcracker prince, will delight children 4 to 10 years old, along with their parents.

“The Colonial Nutcracker,” on Dec. 16 at 2 pm. Tickets are $10.

Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts at Brooklyn College [2900 Campus Rd., between Amersfort Place and Kenilworth Place in Midwood; (718) 951–4500; www.brooklyncenteronline.org].
