THE NUTCRACKER
Music by Piotr Ilyitch Tchaikovsky
Choreography by Keith J. Martin Costume Design by Henry Heymann Decor by William Pryor Brewer III
ACT I Scenes 1 and 2
Dr. and Frau Silberhaus and their children, Clara, Fritz, and Louise, are welcoming neighboring families to their Christmas party when the mysterious Herr Drosselmeyer arrives unexpectedly. He has brought gifts for all the children and for Clara a very special gift -a Nutcracker doll dressed as a handsome prince. Fritz jealously grabs the splendid toy and hurls it to the floor, breaking it. Clara is heartbroken but magically Herr Drosselmeyer repairs the Nutcracker doll. The festivities continue until late into the night.
Scenes 3 and 4
After everyone has departed and gone to bed, Clara sneaks back into the living room to be with the Nutcracker doll. She suddenly feels a strange aura in the room, full of faint rustlings and a growing concert of curious noises. Magically the mice grow to gigantic proportions as does the room and the Christmas tree. Clara is terrified until the Nutcracker appears life-size and with his army of soldiers engages the mice in a fierce battle. He wins the battle and as he turns victoriously to Clara, she sees that he isn't a wooden doll but a handsome cavalier. With a flourish he invites Clara to journey with him to the Kingdom of Snow, a land of glittering crystal and ice.
INTERMISSION
ACT II
Clara and her cavalier continue their journey to the Kingdom of Sweets where Herr Drossel?meyer introduces them to a court full of confections from many lands dancing just for them -chocolate from Spain, coffee from Arabia, tea from China, and other tasty treats. Clara suddenly finds herself transformed into a grown-up ballerina, the Sugar Plum Fairy, and she and her cavalier dance a beautiful pas de deux. The whole kingdom joins with Clara and her cavalier in a grand finale and pay homage to the couple as they continue on their journey to the Kingdom of Enchantment.
