New York City Ballet is one of the foremost dance companies in the world, with a roster of spectacular dancers and an unparalleled repertory. The company was founded in 1948 by George Balanchine and Lincoln Kirsten and it quickly became world known for its athletic and contemporary style. In 1964 New York City Ballet moved to its current home in Lincoln Center where it performs twenty-one weeks of each year. Widely acknowledged for its enduring contributions to dance, NYCB is committed to promoting creative excellence and nurturing a new generation of dancers and choreographers.

From School Library Journal:

K-Gr 2—Docampo's illustrations and the text are based on George Balanchine's staging of the Tchaikovsky work by the New York City Ballet. This is an approachable version of the story that will especially appeal to children who have seen the performance in person or on television. The stylized paintings have a whimsical, dramatic feel, full of sweeping curves and exaggerated features. The rich palette and shadowy lighting firmly plant the action on a stage. VERDICT A good option for families heading to the ballet during the holiday season.—Virginia Walter, UCLA School of Education and Information Studies
