Performers from The New York City Ballet's The Nutcracker visited the New York Stock Exchange on Thursday. In honor of its 56 anniversary on Broadway, the cast, decked out in full holiday regalia (including the wood-headed Nutcracker himself) rang the opening bell at the beginning of the trading day.

It was a surreal sight. Lithe ballerinas twisted on the trading floor while traders schooled the tiny cast members in the intricacies of the economy. Adorable, indeed.

George Balanchine's The Nutcracker runs through January 2, 2011 at Manhattan's David H. Koch Theater at Lincoln Center.
