The Nutcracker captures all that the holidays imbue: landscapes covered in snow, songs with cheery melodies, and encounters with maniacal despots who want to steal your toys. Celebrate a relatable story with today’s GrouponLive deal: for $27, you get two mezzanine-level tickets to see the Connecticut Ballet’s production of The Nutcracker at the Jorgensen Center for the Performing Arts at the University of Connecticut in Storrs (up to a $54 value). Choose between the following showtimes:

  • Sunday, December 11, at 1 p.m.
  • Sunday, December 11, at 4 p.m.<p>

Under the artistic direction of Brett Raphael, the Connecticut Ballet teams up with children from area dance schools for two performances of Tchaikovsky’s fantastical children’s Christmas tale. Thanks to primo mezzanine seats, audiences can turn their binoculars backward to witness young Clara as she shrinks under her family’s Christmas tree, slipping into an imaginative dreamscape. As her toy nutcracker comes to life and escorts her through a Yuletide wonderland, the troupe’s performers traverse the stage with nimble footwork. Toward the end of the first act, an elaborate battle unfolds between the Nutcracker Prince’s army of toy soldiers and the sinister Mouse King, who outrages his realm with tax exemptions for hamsters. Soon after, Clara and the prince venture into the Land of Snow and the Land of Sweets. Then, as a finale, spectators are treated to a pas de deux, the French term for a foot-to-foot high-five.
