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.

Authors Amy Hempel (The Dog of the Marriage), Merrill Markoe (What the Dogs Have Taught Me) and Abigail Thomas (A Three Dog Life) introduce funny and poignant short fiction about canine companionship, inspired by the dogs in their lives. A few of the writers' four-legged muses will even make a special appearance! The evening is a collaboration with The Bark Magazine ("The New Yorker for dog lovers" –Time), and is timed to coincide with the publication of The Bark's second anthology, Howl: A Collection of the Best Contemporary Dog Wit. Readers are Boston Terrier owner Joan Allen, Labrador owner Patricia Kalember and Rochelle Oliver.
This event is part of the Selected Shorts: A Celebration of the Short Story series.
