    Ajkun Ballet Theatre join forces with children of the community for this magical Holiday Favorite Ballet choreographed by Chiara Ajkun.

    About this event

    The Holiday Season is perfect with a Family outing for the Nutcracker. Great for creating memories, the story of sweet little Clara, her toymaker uncle and a Nutcracker toy that transforms in a prince. Filled with funny battles with the mice and flavors from a worldwide journey to the Kingdom of Sweets. Children from the local community perform along the company in Chiara Ajkun's version of the Nutcracker.

    This performance is part of the Theater Series.

    In the festive athmosphere of the Holiday Season, Herr Drosselmeyer, surprises his niece Clara with special gifts to everyone’s delight: a Ballerina and a Nutcracker doll. Party guests depart and Clara sneaks out of bed to see her Nutcracker Doll, falls asleep and begins to dream. Herr Drosselmeyer settles the battle of the mice by bringing to life the Nutcracker. Clara and the Nutcracker embark on a magical journey through the enchanted pine forest to the Kingdom of Sweets. Greeted by the Dewdrop Fairy, Clara is entertained by Spanish, Chinese, Arabian, Russian, and Mirliton dancers. The fragrant Flowers Waltz introduces Clara to the Sugar Plum Fairy and her Cavalier's Grand Pas de Deux.
