The acrobats, clowns and other talented artists of the magical circus will be performing their show in the Hulu Theatre at Madison Square Garden.

The Nutcracker

In November and December, alongside the musicals and plays, you can also enjoy Christmas cheer at the ballet! Each year the renowned New York City Ballet perform The Nutcracker.
