    Create family memories and embrace the arts with our Thanksgiving Special Event: The Nutcracker by Chiara Ajkun.

    About this event

    Tchaikovsky’s timeless holiday classic kicks off the Holiday Season with a Thanksgiving Special Event as essential as the cranberry relish and as warm as the chocolate’s caliente. Warming audiences for over 100 years, the Nutcracker is perfect for a family outing and completed by complimentary photos with the cast.

    This performance is part of the Face to Face Series.

    Join the Party and watch Clara (Brown) receive a Ballerina and a Nutcracker doll (Muñoz and Munkherdene) by her beloved Uncle Drosselmeyer (Jake). Jump into Clara’s dream as the Nutcracker comes to live to battle the mice (Mouse King: Delli Priscoli) and to embark on a magical journey through the enchanted pine forest to the Kingdom of Sweets. Greeted by the Dewdrop Fairy (Jeong), enjoy the entertainment by Spanish, Chinese, Arabian, Russian, and Mirliton dancers. The fragrant Flowers Waltz introduces Clara to the Sugar Plum Fairy (Burbine) and her Cavalier (Tafaj) Grand Pas de Deux for a delight of ballerina’s delicacy and powerful male dancing.

    Libretto: Alexandre Dumas Père’s adaptation of the story by E.T.A. Hoffmann “The Nutcracker and the Mouse King
