A Christmas tradition is living on in a different way this year, and you can experience it. The New York City Ballet’s production of The Nutcracker will be going virtual for 2020, and you can stream it at home!

Like many other performance companies, the New York City Ballet had to cancel its season this year due to COVID-19. But that hasn’t stopped the troupe from carrying on with its famous Christmas ballet.

The company is teaming up with Marquee TV to stream a recorded performance from 2019. It will be available from Dec. 11, 2020, through Jan. 3, 2021. Tickets for the virtual performances start at $25 for those in the U.S. and they’re available on the Marquee website.

“New York City Ballet and George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker are essential parts of the holiday season in New York City,” said Jonathan Stafford, the artistic director of the New York City Ballet and the School of American Ballet, in a press release.

“We are thrilled that through our new partnership with Marquee TV, audiences everywhere will now have the opportunity to experience the beauty and magic of this treasured classic in the comfort and safety of their own homes during what continues to be a very challenging year.”
