Description: A rousing snowstorm sends a blizzard of ballerinas across the stage, sweeping you to exotic locales in the enchanting Land of Sweets. You'll meet marching toy soldiers, little Marie, and the valiant Nutcracker who saves her from the villainous, seven-headed Mouse King. Tschaikovsky's incomparable score is joined by hundreds of dazzling costumes, a one-ton tree that magically grows and grows, and a million watts of illuminated excitement.
