Fondly regarded as one of the most popular ballets in the Western world, The Nutcracker is a beloved holiday tradition for the whole family. Based on the classic E.T.A. Hoffman fairy tale “The Nutcracker and the Mouse King,” The Nutcracker tells the story of Clara, who receives a Nutcracker doll from her uncle, Dr. Drosselmeyer. The young girl later dreams that her Nutcracker doll comes to life and leads an army of toy soldiers into battle against the evil Mouse King. After the Mouse King is defeated, Clara and her Nutcracker Prince journey through the beautiful Land of Snow and the Kingdom of Sweets, witnessing a world of breathtaking magic along the way. When Clara awakens, she wonders if her magical journey was all but a dream.
