The classic story of “The Nutcracker” centers on young Clara, who receives an unusual gift on Christmas Eve from her Uncle Drosselmeyer. Magically, the Nutcracker transforms into a handsome prince and takes her on a fantastical journey in a single night.
They battle giant mice, travel through a land of swirling snowflakes, and visit a spectacular kingdom with confections of every kind – bonbons, candy canes, marzipan, Spanish chocolate, Arabian coffee, and Chinese tea.
Now in its 26th season, Ballet Tucson’s professional company of dancers presents dance productions with a full range of historic classics and contemporary works.
In addition, its children’s company of more than 75 perform alongside Ballet Tucson’s professionals in full-length family-oriented productions, such as “The Nutcracker,” “Cinderella,” “Sleeping Beauty” and “Swan Lake.”
