About the show:
Start your holiday celebrations with our Thanksgiving weekend production of Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker, complete with a live orchestra. The Nutcracker is a two-act ballet by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky based on the stories of E.T.A. Hoffmann and Alexandre Dumas and first performed in Russia in December 1892. The story revolves around Clara, a young girl who receives a nutcracker doll as a Christmas gift and then enters a magical world where the nutcracker and other characters come to life.
