Even though the Sugar Plum Fairy might be wearing a mask while she twirls across the stage, the Long Island Posey School of Dance is determined to keep the magic of performing 'The Nutcracker' this holiday season from a distance.

The show on the steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art was presented as a gift to the city.

It featured three holiday songs, "Carol of the Bells," "Winter Wonderland," and the "Hallelujah Chorus."

The concert was organized by NYC Next.
