Event

The Nutcracker, Everett
Clara and the Nutcracker


The Nutcracker is the story of a little girl named Clara and a wooden doll that was given to her on Christmas Eve many years ago. Clara lives with her brother, Fritz, and her parents, Herr and Frau Burgermeister and his wife.

As the ballet opens, we see Herr Drosselmeyer on his way to a Christmas party at the Silberhaus home, carrying presents for his godchildren, Clara and Fritz. Pausing to check his watch outside the home, he finds himself surrounded by a group of children who discover a present he has left on the ground, and they return it to him.

Meanwhile, preparations are being made in the home of Clara's parents, Herr and Frau Burgermeister, for their annual Christmas Eve party. After the other guests have arrived, Herr Drosselmeyer appears, gives presents to the children and entertains all with life-size mechanical dolls. Her Drosselmeyer has a special present for his godchild Clara: a wonderful Nutcracker doll. In jealousy, her brother Fritz throws The Nutcracker on the floor and breaks it, but Herr Drosselmeyer quickly mends it. The party continues with gifts, dancing and refreshments until the guests depart.

In the quiet of the night, Clara steals back to the parlor to hug her Nutcracker doll. The atmosphere seems to change, and in a room bather in moonlight, Clara curls up on the floor with her Nutcracker and falls asleep. Herr Drosselmeyer appears as a magical character who leads her into a world of fantasy and imagination.

Clara dreams a marvelously vivid dream in which the Christmas tree grow, the rats attack the toy soldiers and a terrible battle begins with cannons. The Rat King and The Nutcracker Prince fight a great duel. Most exciting of all, The Nutcracker doll becomes a real Prince whose life she saves.

As a reward, The Nutcracker prince send Clara on a enchanted journey through the Land of Snow where she sees a beautiful Snow Queen and handsome King dance with the swirling Snowflakes.

At last Clara, accompanied by her guide, Herr Drosselmeyer, arrive in the Land of Sweets. Two lovely Little Fairies wait expectantly while the sleep Pages and Jesters let their minds wander and their bodies rest. As Clara arrives, the Fairies give the court pages a wake-up call and all the wonderful inhabitants of this beautiful land enter the throne room to pay homage to Clara. Finally, the beautiful SugarPlum Fairy arrives to greet Clara and have her sit on a special throne.

One after another, Spanish Chocolate, Arian Coffee, Chinese Tea, Russian Trepak and Mother Ginger with her impish children, perform. Enchanted flowers waltz and the SugarPlum Fairy honor Clara before she leaves by dancing a Pas de Deux with her Cavalier. They all wave Clara on to happy dreams, and finally, Clara wakes up in her own world…Christmas morning.
