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.

Quotes & Highlights
- “Fain’s tone is dark yet athletic; he plays a mean violin…” —The New York Times
It’s a rare treat to experience a Philip Glass premiere, especially as performed by rising star violinist Tim Fain. This multi-media evening features Glass’s new Partita for Solo Violin, pianist Nicholas Britell, a film choreographed and directed by Black Swan’s Benjamin Millepied, the music of Pulitzer Prize-winners Aaron Jay Kernis and William Bolcom, Nico Muhly, Kevin Puts, Lev Zhurbin, and the genre-bending Laura Karpman, all interwoven with films by Kate Hackett and the words of Leonard Cohen.
