The Classic Nutcracker
With a cast of over 130 dancers, including internationally renowned guest artists, this holiday favorite offers a magical experience with lively choreography, exquisitely designed costumes and brilliant story-telling through dance.
For novices to this ballet, the story begins on Christmas Eve, where we join a young girl, Clara, her mischievous brother Fritz and their family hosting a party. A latecomer to the party is Clara's mysterious Godfather Drosselmeyer. He presents her with a marvelous gift, a Nutcracker doll. As Clara goes to sleep that night, we are transported into a growing fantasy of the Rat King fighting the toy soldiers, The Nutcracker Prince escorting Clara through the enchanted snow-covered forest and on to his Kingdom of the Sweets where Clara accepts the throne from the Sugar Plum Fairy.
