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.
In Gen Horiuchi’s version of the ballet, brought to life on the Touhill stage, pyrotechnics, smoke, and glitter keep the story’s magic alive while Tchaikovsky’s dazzling inventiveness propels the dances of nimble flowers and regal fairy queens. Throughout, the Saint Louis Ballet will team up with students from the Saint Louis Ballet School, as well as a surprise special guest filling the comic shoes of Mother Ginger.
