This famous holiday ballet premiered in St. Petersburg, Russia in 1892 and surprisingly was not a success. In contrast, during the 1960s, U.S. ballet companies discovered this classic and were met with glowing accolades for their performances of this ballet. Set in the late 1800s, a young girl’s godfather is a toymaker whose toys magically come alive at midnight. Clara is awake and becomes caught in a battle between the Sugar Plum Fairy's soldiers and the Rat King’s rat army. Clara then ventures through a magical realm to reach the Sugar Plum Fairy escorted by The Nutcracker prince.
“The Nutcracker” production presented by Dance Alive, features beautifully choreographed dancing, impressive sets, and spectacular costumes. This family classic Christmas has become a Newberry holiday tradition.
