Let the confectionary charm of Tchaikovsky’s “The Nutcracker” warm your heart in two productions.

The ballet’s story follows the adventures of young Clara and her nutcracker doll, who transforms into a prince to rescue her from the evil Mouse King and takes her to the Land of the Sweet. The performance is filled with dancing dolls, beautiful angels, magical mice, glittering fairies, dazzling dances from exotic lands and endearing performances by hundreds of Treasure Valley children.
