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.
