About The Nutcracker
“The Nutcracker” follows a young girl, Clara, through her adventures on Christmas Eve during a party visited by her mysterious Uncle Drosselmeyer. Life size dolls and toy soldiers create an evening that grows even more fantastical as she falls asleep and witnesses toy soldiers battling mice and rats. A journey through the Land of Snow leads her to a world led by the Sugar Plum Fairy and her Cavalier (played by renowned Rie Ichikawa and Pavel G Gurevich from the Boston Ballet), and filled with dancing candies and sweets performing for her and her soldier prince.
