This December, THE NUTCRACKER celebrates their 130th anniversary premiere of the charming ballet story.


The live ballet story features an extraordinary tale of Clara, her brother Fritz, the Nutcracker Prince, and the Mouse King. The story follows Clara, who receives an unusual Christmas gift – a nutcracker doll that holds a truly magical experience. Grateful for her gift, Clara goes to sleep while holding her nutcracker doll. She falls into a deep slumber and dreams about saving her doll from a ferocious battle against the Mouse King. Upon waking, Clara’s doll transforms into a handsome young prince and whisks her away into the magical Kingdom of Sweets where she is introduced to the world’s most wonderful delicacies.  


The show is filled with blissful and captivating moments, enough to get you and your kids into the magical holiday spirit. Sit back, relax and watch as the story unfolds.
