The Nutcracker presented by Chicago Ballet Conservatory

Sunday, December 3, 2017

The Nutcracker Director: Linda Cunningham Featuring Professional Dancers from Around the World It's Christmas Eve, and the party is in full swing. The adults are enchanted in conversation, the children are busy playing with their presents, and the host's children are amazed with joy at the wonder of it all. There's an element of danger on the horizon though, heralded by the arrival of local magician Herr Drosselmeyer. He brings bearing gifts for the children, including a wooden nutcracker for Clara, the oldest child. However, Fritz her younger brother is jealous of the toy, and maliciously breaks the toy's jaw, to Clara's despair. When the clock strikes midnight, the atmosphere changes; the party is over and everybody is asleep. This is just the start of an adventure which will lead our heroine and her magical Nutcracker prince into a war between mice and tin soldiers and into the enchanted Land of Sweets where a festival awaits them.
