Event description

Description

We love The Nutcracker. But every year we cringe as the curtain rises on the second act, not knowing if an offensive racial caricature in “Chinese Tea” will take the stage. How do we change this classic and beloved work to be more respectful? Phil Chan and New York City Ballet soloist Georgina Pazcoguin share how they are replacing caricature with character in 21st century Nutcrackers.

(If you need assistance with online reservations, please visit the welcome desk at the Library for the Performing Arts' Lincoln Center Plaza entrance, where volunteers will make a reservation for you, even if you do not use email. For free events, The Library generally overbooks to ensure a full house. All registered seats are released 15 minutes before start time, so we recommend that you arrive early.)
