(CNN) – The New York City ballet is taking a holiday tradition digital this year.

You can’t go see The Nutcracker in person; it was canceled because of the pandemic, but you can stream it on marquee TV.

It will be available December 11th through January 3rd.

A 48-hour rental costs $25.00 in the U.S.; prices will vary internationally.

The performance was filmed at the Lincoln Center last December for an upcoming Disney+ documentary.

George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker premiered in February 1954 and has been performed live by the New York City Ballet every year until this year.
