The Nutcracker is the holiday tradition you can’t miss. This magical performance is a true delight for the whole family. From the 25’ holiday tree to the snowflakes falling onstage, The Nutcracker brings you to an imaginary world full of excitement and joy.
We begin at the holiday party of Mr. and Mrs. Stahlbaum where Herr Drosselmeyer soon takes Clara on a wonderful adventure through the Battle Scene where her Nutcracker Prince protects her from the life-size Rats to the dancing Snowflakes full of beautiful patterns through the winter wonderland of falling snow on her journey to the Land of Dreams. The Sugar Plum Fairy introduces Clara to all of the magnificent dancers who will entertain Clara and her Prince. Dances from around the world are sure to delight from the Russian to Chinese to the incredible Waltz of the Flowers and ending with the beautiful Pas De Deux of the Sugar Plum Fairy and her Cavalier.
Run time for the shortened version of The Nutcracker is 1 hour plus an intermission.
After the performance, dancers come out to the lobby in costume to greet audience members. This is a perfect photo opportunity for little ones to pose with real ballerinas and see costumes up close, so bring your camera!
