"Live From Lincoln Center" returns to the New York City Ballet for "George Balanchine's The Nutcracker." The program features New York City Ballet's dancers and the New York City Ballet Orchestra, as well as 50 children from the School of American Ballet, the official school of New York City Ballet.

In a Lincoln Center first, the program will also bring the holiday classic to service men and women around the world via a Christmas Eve re-broadcast on the American Forces Network.
