With the exception, of course, of jolly old Saint Nick, there is no other cultural figure so tightly woven into the fabric
of the American Christmas tradition than The Nutcracker. For generations, families have been seeing this timeless show of
magic and fantasy at stages of all sizes. When December comes around, it seems every theater, from the stage at the local
VFW to the Metropolitan Opera House in New York, is staging a grade school production or a grand Broadway show of The Nutcracker,
and it never fails to delight audiences. Get your The

Clara has been looking forward to her uncle's visit for quite some time, for every time Clara's uncle comes at Christmas,
he brings her the most extravagant gifts. This year, Clara's uncle gives her a precious nutcracker, a beautifully crafted
doll that Clara immediately adores. Tragically, Clara's spiteful brother snatches the doll and breaks it. Devastated, Clara
goes to bed that night crying and lamenting her broken doll, or so she thinks, for when Clara falls asleep, she escapes into
a dream world where the nutcracker is a prince who does battle with an evil mouse king and together he and Clara are the prince
and princess of the Land of Sweets. The Nutcracker is Clara's story told in breathtaking detail with treasured music and captivating
dance. Head over to StubHub to purchase Paramount

What some people tend to forget is the music of the Nutcracker isn't meant to be heard. It sounds great at Christmas time
in department stores or in commercials, and it puts people in the holiday mood, but it's not what Tchaikovsky intended. The
music of The Nutcracker is meant to be seen, to be the score for beautiful dance and a rich story, and only a live performance
of The Nutcracker can bring its music to life. With theater
tickets from StubHub, you can see Tchaikovsky's mesmerizing work of dance and fantasy light up the stage in Oakland!
