The technically and artistically stunning young dancers of Valentina Kozlova's Dance Conservatory take the stage in this famed holiday favorite. Set to Tchaikovsky's timeless score, the glittering tale follows young Clara, who receives the gift of a nutcracker at a festive family Christmas party. That night she dreams of a grand adventure that begins with a handsome prince, continues with an epic battle between mice and toys, and comes to a climax with a magical journey to the Land of Sweets to meet the Sugar Plum Fairy.
