Bay Area Houston Ballet and Theatre presents The Nutcracker
The Nutcracker tells the beloved holiday tale of Clara and her dream journey with her most treasured Christmas gift, the Nutcracker. The night after receiving the gift, Clara sneaks down to the Christmas tree to check on the doll and falls asleep with it in her arms. As the clock strikes midnight, strange things start to happen, and the Nutcracker doll becomes a Prince fighting off rats and the Rat King to protect Clara.
The Nutcracker Prince then takes Clara on a journey to the Land of Snow, where they are greeted by dancing Snow Flakes and the Snow Queen and then on to the Land of the Sweets – the Kingdom of the Sugar Plum Fairy. In the Land of the Sweets, Clara and her Prince are entertained with a celebration of sweets and dances.
