The Nutcracker

Enjoy a Timeless Holiday Classic



Moscow Classical Ballet’s The Nutcracker

Robert Friedman Presents

Fresh white snow covers the ground on Christmas Eve. Inside, children play in the glow of a fireplace, dreaming about the wonderful presents that await them. The gift of a nutcracker from young Clara’s godfather causes the young girl to slip into a wild ride of a dream.

Tchaikovsky’s famous ballet and dazzling holiday staple The Nutcracker blends fantasy and finesse with masks, mice, a princess, a prince, and, of course, a nutcracker.

Enjoy a performance of the Christmas classic performed by Moscow Classical Ballet at McCallum Theatre on Dec. 18 at 7 p.m.

No matter now many times you have seen this holiday favorite, see it again. It’s one of the finest family traditions of the season. www.mccallumtheatre.com

Enjoy a timeless holiday classic.
