Story of The Nutcracker
It’s Christmas Eve, a time when dreams come true, and the Silberhaus family are holding their annual Christmas Party. Presents are exchanged, and among the many gifts Clara receives is a Nutcracker from her magical godfather, Herr Drosselmeyer. The guests dance, and the children play, and when the party is over Clara goes to bed and begins to dream of an adventure. In her dream, the Nutcracker fights a battle with mice, and transports Clara and her brother Fritz on a sleigh, through the Land of Snow to the Land of Sweets . In the Land of Sweets they meet the Sugar Plum Fairy and her Prince, as well as dancers from faraway places. The ballet closes as Clara wakes up in her living room with her Nutcracker, treasuring her wonderful dream.
