The Gaudium Award is presented by the Breukelein Institute, a non-religious, not-for-profit organization under the direction of the Brooklyn Oratory of St. Philip Neri. The Breukelein Institute is devoted to affirming, improving, and reforming the quality of life in the City of New York, and particularly the County of Kings, through the development and support of programs that foster educational, social, and recreational activities. 

The Brooklyn Nutcracker transforms familiar Nutcracker characters and scenes to represent the diverse traditions and vibrant culture of melting pot Brooklyn. Starting from the point of view of old Dutch Brooklyn and leading to our iconic Flatbush Avenue, the production is fresh and full of virtuosity— in essence, a Christmastime love letter to the borough we call home.
