The Holiday Favorite Nutcracker with Ballerinas and Battles with Mice in the classical version by Chiara Ajkun.
About this Event

The Holiday Season is perfect with a Family outing for the Nutcracker. Great for creating memories, the story of sweet little Clara , her toymaker uncle and a Nutcracker toy that transforms in a prince. Filled with funny battles with the mice and flavors from a worldwide journey to the Kingdom of Sweets. Chiara Ajkun's version for Ajkun Ballet Theatre is perfect for children and adults alike and completed by complimentary photos with the cast.

This performance is part of the Face to Face Series.

In the festive athmosphere of the Holiday Season, Herr Drosselmeyer (Jake), surprises his niece Clara (Brown) with special gifts to everyone’s delight: a Ballerina and a Nutcracker doll (Muñoz and Munkherdene). Party guests depart and Clara sneaks out of bed to see her Nutcracker Doll, falls asleep and begins to dream. Herr Drosselmeyer settles the battle of the mice (Mouse King: Delli Priscoli) by bringing to life the Nutcracker. Clara and the Nutcracker embark on a magical journey through the enchanted pine forest to the Kingdom of Sweets. Greeted by the Dewdrop Fairy (Jeong), Clara is entertained by Spanish, Chinese, Arabian, Russian, and Mirliton dancers. The fragrant Flowers Waltz introduces Clara to the Sugar Plum Fairy (Burbine) and her Cavalier (Tafaj) Grand Pas de Deux.
