About The Nutcracker

It's Christmas eve and Clara and Fritz's parents are throwing their annual holiday party. The mysterious guest, the toymaker Herr Drosselmeyer, arrives with life-size dancing dolls to entertain the family and their guests, but he saves his most special gift for his god-daughter Clara, a nutcracker doll. That night, the tree begins to grow, the toy soldiers and the Mouse King have a battle, and Clara's nutcracker turns into a handsome prince. This child-friendly adaptation of the complete ballet score is given a beautiful retelling of the story by Jim Weiss, America's premiere storyteller.

This one-hour version of the world's most famous ballet, where Clara receives a nutcracker for Christmas and wonderful things begin to happen, will delight young and old alike!
