The Miami City Ballet stages George Balanchine's acclaimed 1954 version of the Tchaikovsky holiday classic in grand style at Kravis Center, with a full-scale spectacular featuring more than 100 dancers and children, including several international ballet stars, plus snowy special effects and sumptuous costumes and sets. Based on E.T.A. Hoffmann's beloved holiday tale, this glittering production follows young Clara, who receives the gift of a nutcracker at a family Christmas party, magically leading to a grand adventure that begins with a handsome prince and an epic battle between mice and toys, and ends with a journey to the Kingdom of Sweets.
