The Nutcracker Richmond Tickets
The Nutcracker Richmond Tickets
A lighthearted adaption of E.T.A. Hoffman’s "The Nutcracker and the Mouse King," The Nutcracker was composed by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky and tells the enchanting tale of a young girl named Clara who falls in love with a wooden nutcracker her godfather gives her as a gift. Tiptoeing down the stairs after everyone has fallen fast asleep on Christmas Eve, Clara gathers the nutcracker in her arms and dances around the Christmas tree. At the stroke of midnight, the nutcracker transforms into a soldier prince. To gain control over the Land of Toys, the prince enters into a battle with the Mouse King. The first act ends with the prince defeating the Mouse King and happiness being restored throughout the land. The second act of Tchaikovsky’s ballet follows the prince and Clara as they venture through the Land of the Sweets. Magical characters that include a Sugar Plum fairy, a ballerina doll, a soldier and others greet the pair with their dancing and antics that will delight audience members of all ages. Join in the fun by getting your tickets to a The Nutcracker Richmond performance at StubHub.
How a Christmas Tradition Was Born
Tchaikovsky’s adaption of The Nutcracker was performed in concert in 1892, and it left the audience wanting more. The ballet performance was witnessed a few months later with great anticipation, but according to critics, the show was an insult to the musical scores that were heard earlier. In 1940, Walt Disney resurrected Tchaikovsky’s works for use in some of his movies. This sparked curiosity in the minds of many that heard the harmonious pieces. Over time The Nutcracker ballet performance was reborn and graciously accepted throughout the US. Performed around Christmastime and having an opening of a holiday gathering, The Nutcracker has become a Christmas tradition around the world. Gather your loved ones and take part in one of The Nutcracker Richmond tour performances this Christmas.
