The Nutcracker is as much a holiday tradition as cookie baking, colorful decorations and gift giving. This year, after months of hard work and a demanding rehearsal schedule, more than two dozen young ladies in the area are fulfilling their dream to play the ballet’s central role of Clara.
The two-act ballet, based on a story by E.T.A Hoffmann, The Nutcracker and the King of Mice, follows the whimsical and magical dream of a young girl, Clara, who receives a nutcracker as a gift during an elegant Christmas Eve party her parents host. In her dreams, her nutcracker becomes a handsome prince who battles the Mouse King and leads her to the Land of Sweets, where she meets the Sugar Plum Fairy.
