With flowers that waltz, a nutcracker toy that springs to life as a prince, a Sugar Plum Fairy that dances a pas de deux and gingerbread soldiers that war with mice, The Nutcracker's magic is undeniable. Set to Tchaikovsky's majestic score, it's no surprise the ballet has become a holiday tradition. Watch your friends' and family's eyes fill with wonder this fall as Minneapolis/St. Paul's Metropolitan Ballet and Hopkins Youth Ballet pair to stage the classic story with fresh choreography and a cast featuring Broadway star Giuseppe Bausilio (Billy Elliot). And as Minnesota's only Nutcracker with a full symphony, the show at Hopkins High School Performing Arts Center is the perfect way to start your holiday season.
This show’s running time is approximately 100 minutes.
