The Nutcracker Portland Tickets
The Nutcracker Portland Tickets
Christmas is a special time of year that everyone experiences differently. Some people sing Christmas carols, some enjoy baking, while others take the time to see a classic holiday ballet. The Nutcracker is a tale that is quite old; in fact, it stems from a book that was written in 1826. The tale is known as "The Nutcracker and the Mouse King." Though this is a very popular ballet, today, it did not become quite as loved until almost 100 years passed from the time that it was written.
A Family Favorite that Comes Alive to Life
The story is a fantastic tale about a little girl who gets a toy nutcracker for Christmas. She falls asleep with the toy in her arms underneath the Christmas tree, and she begins to dream. In her dream, her toys come to life. She turns into a princess, and the new toy that she has come to love turns into a prince. They journey through quite a few lands to find their way to the Sugar Plum Fairy, and along the way, they experience trials and battles that they must fight past to find their destination. In the production, the Christmas tree that she falls asleep grows to be over 40 feet tall, indicating that they have shrunken to a much smaller size.
