Dance Prism’s presentation of The Nutcracker, celebrating its 28th season this year, is a fully staged professional production featuring a lively choreography, Tchaikovsky’s beloved music, and the traditional delights of this favorite holiday tradition. Dance Prism’s _Nutcracker _ offers an affordable family friendly opportunity to celebrate the holidays with a production enjoyed throughout New England since 1982.
The performance follows Clara’s magical journey from a traditional 19th-century Christmas party through a fantastic battle of toy soldiers and giant mice and a voyage through the ethereal kingdom of Snow, arriving finally at the Land of the Sugarplum Fairy where sweets from all lands come to life and dance in her honor. Tchaikovsky’s exquisite score accompanies a cast of 140 professionals and young dancers as well as a growing Christmas tree, a reindeer drawn sleigh amidst a swirling snowstorm, and the clash of swords as a menacing Rat King battles the valiant Nutcracker Prince. Young audience members are invited to meet Clara and the Nutcracker Prince following the performance.
