The Deal

The Nutcracker

Based on a novel by 19th-century romantic fabulist E.T.A. Hoffman, The Nutcracker weaves a magical tale of holiday adventure around one of the most recognizable scores in the ballet repertoire. It begins when young Clara receives a nutcracker from her godfather, a wizardly toymaker named Drosselmeyer. Sneaking downstairs to see the toy after everyone else has gone to bed, she suddenly finds herself caught in the middle of a pitched battle between the toys and an army of mice. After saving the nutcracker with a well-thrown shoe to the Mouse King’s head, Clara and her now-living prince venture into the Land of Snow and the Land of Sweets to celebrate.

Before each matinee, the Sugar Plum Parade waltzes onstage with a cavalcade of family activities. There, Clara’s voice casts a spell over children as she reads from The Nutcracker storybook. Cast members also mingle with the crowd to offer autographs, photo opportunities, and insights into the Mouse King’s defensive weaknesses—and offer a quick ballet lesson or two. After a backstage tour, guests can help themselves to snacks and treats to fuel their brain for the main event.
