Area Dance Companies to Perform the Nutcracker


With the cold crisp air and white snow falling, December brings the season of The Nutcracker.

A classic Christmas story, The Nutcracker is a fairy-tale ballet composed by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky.

The show centers on Clara, a girl who befriends a nutcracker that comes to life on Christmas Eve and wages a battle against the evil Mouse King. Fans of this show go to watch The Sugar Plum Fairy, Rat King, soldiers, Dewdrop Fairies, and more take the stage.
