“Clara’s Dream” reimagines the holiday favorite in a ballet that still hews to the tradition. —Star Tribune

The most delightful holiday event of the year returns for a fourth holiday season at The O’Shaughnessy.

Zoé Emilie Henrot’s Clara’s Dream from The Nutcracker is fun for all ages; the 90-minute length is a perfect way to introduce young children to the power and beauty of classical dance with Tchiakovsky’s amazing and familiar score.

Based on an original story, “The Nutcracker and the Mouse King,” by ETA Hoffman, SPB has reimagined the star of this story as Clara. The ballet opens with the familiar 19th-century holiday party where we are introduced to Clara and her uncle Drosselmeyer, a magician who arrives with dancing dolls. After the party Clara falls asleep and the magic begins. Her dream begins with a growing tree under which a battle between mice and toy soldiers takes place. She travels through the Land of Snows to the Kingdom of Sweets to meet waltzing flowers, nursery rhyme characters, dancers from many lands and the iconic Sugar Plum Fairy. It’s a fantasy journey told with innocence and wonder to one of the most layered and lush musical scores ever written.
