Taking in a performance of The Nutcracker this season? Start your evening with a glass of champagne at the newly installed Ruinart Champagne Bar at the David H. Koch Theater. The oldest champagne house in the world—founded in 1729 by a Benedictine monk—and the renowned dance company have joined forces to make your cultural outings a little more festive. As the first official champagne of the NYCB, Ruinart will be available for all performance-goers in the lobby, along with being served at the organization’s special events. We really can’t think of any combination more elegant than world-class ballet and bubbles. Cheers!
