Experience the captivating world of The Nutcracker where a magic Christmas tree grows taller and taller and our young heroine vanquishes the Mouse King to save her beloved Nutcracker. Transported through swirling snowflakes and waltzing flowers, Clara and her Nutcracker Prince travel to The Land of Sweets where Russian, Chinese, Spanish and Arabian dancers, along with Mother Ginger and her children, present them with beautiful gifts. This celebration culminates in a spectacular performance in Clara’s honor by the dainty Sugar Plum Fairy and her handsome Cavalier.
Story Of The Nutcracker
It’s Christmas Eve, a time when dreams may come true. Drosselmeyer, godfather to Clara, brings gifts and magic to her parents’ home for the annual Christmas party. His special gift to Clara is a large Nutcracker soldier. When she falls asleep after the party, Clara is cradling the Nutcracker in her arms and begins to dream.
In her dream, her Nutcracker soldier fights a battle and transports her on a sleigh through the Land of Snow to the Land of Sweets, where she meets the Sugar Plum Fairy and people from far away lands.
The ballet closes as Drosselmeyer brings Clara back from her dream, still cradling her Nutcracker soldier and treasuring her wonderful dream.
