The Nutcracker

Performing one of the most popular ballets in the world, The State Ballet Theatre of Russia will act out Clara’s Christmas Eve dream as she ventures into a land full of magic and wonder. After leading an army of toy soldiers to defeat the Mouse King, a nutcracker transforms back into a prince and takes the young girl to the Land of Sweets, where dancers from around the world share candy-inspired routines. Set to one of Tchaikovsky’s most famous compositions, the show includes memorable melodies like “Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy,” “Waltz of the Flowers,” Russian Dance” and “March.”
