The ballet tells the story of young Clara, who receives a beautiful toy Nutcracker on Christmas Eve. While she sleeps, the Nutcracker comes to life and escorts her on a magical journey where Clara dances and plays with beautiful and wondrous characters that can only exist in her dreams.
The story will be enhanced by State Street Ballet's magnificent, opulent sets, complete with a gloriously gigantic Christmas tree. Created in Russia, they set the backdrop for glittering snowflakes, waltzing flowers, the Sugar Plum Fairy and her enchanting castle of characters. The beautifully restored Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox is the perfect backdrop to the production and the icing on your holiday cake!
