One of Minnesota's favorite Holiday Shows

 A true Minnesotan experience, this festive dance show is one of the most popular holiday events in the Twin Cities region.

See Clara and Drosselmeyer dance across Rice Park and Summit Avenue in St. Paul, along with to the snow-covered banks of the Mississippi River in Minneapolis, before the action takes to the Land of Sweets!

The story of The Nutcracker was originally written by E.T.A. Hoffmann however the beautiful score which accompanies this world-famous ballet was created by Tchaikovsky and received its debut over 100 years ago in 1892. An evening spent at a performance of this enchanting Holiday classic by your local ballet company is the perfect way to welcome the Christmas season with the whole family!

What is the story?

One snowy Christmas Eve, at a great townhouse where a party is in full swing, local magician Herr Drosselmeyer with gifts for the children, including a wooden nutcracker for Clara, the oldest child.
