The Nutcracker Ballet
On Christmas Eve, a little girl named Marie falls asleep after a family party at her home and dreams herself into a fantastic world where toys become larger than life. After defending her from the ferocious Mouse King, the Nutcracker transforms into a handsome prince and carries her through the enchanted snowflake forest to the Land of Sweets. Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker is perhaps not only the composer's most famous work but also one of the most famous ballets of all time and a wonderful Christmas tradition. Presented by A Family of Friends Productions in conjunction with Betsy’s School of Dance.
