The holiday tradition of The Nutcracker comes to life with beautiful performances, spectacular costumes and mesmerizing backdrops. The classic story follows Clara on a magical journey with the Nutcracker prince from the Christmas Eve party and battle scene between the soldiers and mouse army, to the Land of the Snowflakes and the Land of Sweets. They are welcomed by the Snow Queen and Sugar Plum Fairy, with rewards of beautiful gifts and celebrations of dances from around the world. Clara awakens from her dream at home with exciting and beautiful memories of her journey with her Nutcracker Prince.
This high-level production features incredible artistry, breathtaking dancing, beautiful costumes and colorful sets that are on-par with performances seen from large scale studios.
