We all have our favorite holiday traditions…why not add one more to the list? Join The Cornell Club- New York at our Sugar Plum Fairy Brunch followed by a matinee performance of Tchaikovsky's classic ballet, The Nutcracker. Tschaikovsky's beloved melodies will transport you to a magical world where mischievous mice besiege a battalion of toy soldiers, and an onstage blizzard leads to an enchanted Land of Sweets. Whether it's a first-time experience or an annual treat, don't miss the hottest holiday ticket in town.

The brunch and ballet package includes brunch at The Cornell Club and a second ring ticket for the ballet. Brunch will be served from 10:00am to 12:00pm. Ticket holders will make their own way to the David H. Koch Theater for the 1:00pm start of the ballet. Tickets are limited and are sold on first come, first served basis.


Planning to spend a day in the city taking in the sights and holiday shopping? Members are invited to attend the Sugar Plum Fairy Brunch without the purchase of Nutcracker tickets for $50 per person plus tax and service charge.
