This production, originally conceived by Keith Michael, is the perfect introduction to the world of ballet. The Nutcracker follows the story of Clara, when she is given a Nutcracker doll on Christmas eve by her mysterious Uncle Herr Drosselmeyer. That night, the Nutcracker engages in battle with the army of the mouse king and transports Clara to the magical world of the Sugar Plum Fairy.
