Nestled in a historic riding hall more than a century old, Noble Horse Theatre presents engrossing equestrian art starring a stable of equine luminaries and their globetrotting cadre of rein masters. Performed entirely on horseback, Noble Horse’s The Nutcracker populates the beloved holiday tale with dashing stunt riders, an elegant quadrille of white stallions, and a Trojan candy cane filled with miniature ponies. As the traditional Tchaikovsky score plays, a narrator leads audiences through the famous battle against the Mouse King to a dreamscape in which the Nutcracker transforms into a prince. Classical riding styles and daring stunts pair with impressive sound and lighting design to unspool the fantastical holiday tale of Clara, her eccentric Uncle Drosselmeyer, and a treasure chest of enchanted toys. Show-goers perch on unobstructed chairs arranged in stadium fashion in a candlelit venue and may tote along their own snacks and spirits, which can be consumed atop castle-like antique tables or the backs of bumbling understudies.
