With visions of sugar plums dancing on stage, the story of The Nutcracker is most often seen as the ballet of that name. This children’s play is set to the familiar dreamy music by Peter Illyich Tchaikovsky. The children, Fritz and Marie are visited by Uncle Drosselmeyer who brings three very special dolls for their Christmas presents. But the enchantment begins when Marie sneaks downstairs to say goodnight to the dolls, Clara, the nutcracker, and the toy soldier. She falls asleep holding the nutcracker. As she enters dreamland the lights flicker, the Christmas tree grows and the beautiful dolls come to life and we enter the illusion of the Land of Enchanted Dreams where snowflakes talk and dance, nutcrackers turn into enchanted princes and dolls are the ballerinas.
