Southern California’s most spectacular production of The Nutcracker from critically acclaimed Inland Pacific Ballet tells the story of a young girl named Clara who receives a magical nutcracker doll on Christmas Eve and sets out on a wondrous journey to the Land of the Snow and the Kingdom of Sweets. The Nutcracker comes to life in this magnificent ballet with beautiful sets, dazzling costumes, and Tchaikovsky’s classic score. Toy soldiers, life-sized dancing dolls, falling snow, a fantastic dream with battling mice, dancing snowflakes, waltzing flowers, gingerbread characters, and the delightful Sugar Plum Fairy.
