With Christmas only days away, Nutcracker mania is reaching its peak. But the magic is far from gone. Case in point: New York City Ballet corps de ballet member Devin Alberda's beautiful behind-the-scenes photo series of the company's Nutcracker production. New York Magazine featured the series on its Instagram account this weekend, releasing a few images every hour (and it's still going until the end of the day!). Alberda's photos are always stunning—his personal Insta is a jaw-dropping collection of snapshots depicting the daily happenings at NYCB—so it's no surprise that the same can be said about this series. Take a look at some of our favorites below, and check out New York Magazine's Insta feed with all the images here.
