it is sure to have quite the following of fans lining up to see it. Make sure you are a part of it.
The story of The Nutcracker begins
at a Christmas party where two children are left playing around the tree. A young girl named Clara is given a wooden nutcracker
shaped like a soldier, but her brother breaks it. When she falls asleep, she awakens to her nutcracker coming to life and
taking part in a massive battle with an army of mice. The story has become a holiday favorite over the years.
One of the secrets behind the long-term success of The Nutcracker is the man behind it. The score is by the famed Pyotr
Tchaikovsky, who is one of the most famous names in theater.
Tchaikovsky is also the man who created other hits like Swan Lake, Sleeping Beauty and many others. Gather your favorite people
