A re-imagined holiday classic, The Brooklyn Nutcracker fuses ballet, hip-hop and a myriad of world dance genres to create a new tradition for today’s audience. The Brooklyn Nutcracker transforms familiar Nutcracker characters and scenes to represent the diverse traditions and vibrant culture of melting pot Brooklyn. Starting from the point of view of old Dutch Brooklyn and leading to the iconic Flatbush Avenue, the production is fresh and full of virtuosity—in essence, a moving Christmas card to the borough Brooklyn Ballet calls home.
Ticket prices start at $25

at The Peter B. Lewis Theater at the Solomon R. Gugge, $40, $35 for members and Friends of Works & Pr
In what has become an annual holiday tradition, Works & Process at the Guggenheim presents ten performances of Sergei Prokofiev's charming children's classic, Peter & the Wolf. Reviving the sold-out 2015 production, for the tenth year, renowned fashion designer Isaac Mizrahi will narrate the production. Brad Lubman will conduct Ensemble Signal. Mizrahi will narrate, direct, design the set and costumes, and his special cast will perform choreography by John Heginbotham, in which the familiar characters come to life in the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Peter B. Lewis Theater at the Guggenheim. The story brings 30 minutes of suspense, including a happy ending, and allows the young and young-at-heart to hear.

Darius' darker, synthier take on house, disco and funk have made us move for years now, and it looks like the rest of the world is finally catching up. Renowned for his role in Cherokee, the French artist has spearheaded the revival of French nu-disco and house, landing him on the forefront of many a dance floor.
The French auteur is hitting our favorite let-your-hair-down spot in Greenpoint, Good Room, for a weekend night underneath its mystical disco ball. We always end up making fun choices on this dance floor, and a Darius-curated evening will abound with lush sounds and even lusher dancing.
Doors at 10PM
