Time Out says

Brooklyn Ballet steps up to offer the city’s only live, in-person performance of The Nutcracker this season—or at least a glimpse of one. The troupe’s usual version, choreographed by artistic director Lynn Parkerson, emphasizes cultural and artistic diversity; alongside sequences that hew to the classic 19th-century tradition are interludes that feature street dance, flamenco, belly dancing, Chinese dance, hoop dance and hip-hop. This year, that diversity will be on prime display as the company offers 25 minutes of excerpts from the show through the floor-to-ceiling windows of its studio space as spectators watch from outdoors. The show is presented nine times over the course of four days, for free and with no ticketing.
