Your holiday dream begins with this sparkling treat, created by Allen Fields. At a party in her family’s elegant Manhattan townhouse a century ago, Clara receives a wooden nutcracker. After midnight, he comes to life and leads his toy soldiers against mice warriors. With Clara’s help, the Nutcracker triumphs and magically turns into a prince. Enjoy the enchantment with Clara and her Nutcracker Prince in this wondrous place. Enjoy Central Park, the exotic Asian, Arabian, Spanish and Russian dancers. Enjoy Mother Ginger with her winsome troupe of gingerbread children, the regal Sugar Plum Fairy, beautiful flowers led by the Dew Drop Fairy.
More than 50 local dancers will join the Minnesota Ballet in this performance of the Nutcracker.
