Arsht Center for the Performing Arts. From Dec 18th through 23rd, 2009.
Based on the story The Nutcracker and The Mouse King by E.T.A. Hoffmann, The Nutcracker is a captivating tale of a little girl’s Christmas Eve dream about a handsome prince, a mouse king, toy soldiers and dancers from faraway lands set to the beloved music of Tchaikovsky. Brought to life by more than 100 dancers, the performance includes the participation of talented children from Miami City Ballet School who will dance alongside this New York Times critically acclaimed Company.
Nothing short of a Broadway spectacular, the production features glorious sets, arresting costumes like the ones worn by the Arabian and Chinese dancers, magical special effects, such as a Christmas tree that soars from twelve to thirty feet tall, and fanciful choreography that takes the spectator into a magical journey to the Land of the Sweets.
