About this show

BBT/School of Russian Ballet presents The Nutcracker. As homes light up with warm fires and the streets become covered with blankets of white fluffy snow, a season of fantasy and magic envelopes the children. Kids come out and play in the snow and run home to unwrap their presents during the special holiday season. Fritz is having a big birthday party and invites all his friends. Fritz's parents are very wealthy and each year he has a grand party and receives many presents. This year his godfather, Dr. Drosselmeyer, the magician, gives him the beautiful Nutcracker doll. But Fritz doesn't care about the Nutcracker doll and immediately breaks it. All the kids go to eat the birthday cake and Fritz leaves the broken Nutcracker doll under the Christmas tree. In Fritz's home, lived a young girl named Marie, who was an orphan and was never invited to any of Fritz's birthday parties. She always wanted to participate in the holiday festivities with the other kids, but she spent her holidays scrubbing and cleaning the floors. She always dreamt about meeting a Prince and marrying him. When she was cleaning she saw the broken Nutcracker doll and she fell in love with him. But Marie was very upset that the Nutcracker doll was broken and all she wanted was for him to be fixed. Dr. Drosselmeyer, the Magician, fixes the Nutcracker doll and he comes to life. All the toys and the tree also come to life and dance for Marie in the Ball of Toys. But an Army of Mice attack the toys and break up the ball. Marie helps the Nutcracker win the battle against the Mice by throwing a piece of cheese at the King Mouse. After they win the battle they arrive in the Kingdom of Toys and Sweets and the toys and candy dance the Spanish, Arabian, Chinese, Russian and French dance. Next Marie and the Nutcracker travel to The Land of Flowers, and the Nutcracker turns into a Prince and Marie, who has grown into a beautiful young women marries the Nutcracker Prince during the "Waltz the Flowers."
