Feel the magic of Christmastime during this timeless favorite. Visions of sugarplums will dance in your head after you travel on a journey with Clara, who is presented with a nutcracker on Christmas Eve. Originally composed by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, some of these productions put a spin on the traditional Nutcracker ballet with upbeat music and diverse choreography.
