Why See Pacific Festival Ballet - The Nutcracker?
A holiday must see
Magic returns this holiday season with the classic storytelling of The Nutcracker from the Civic Arts Center's resident ballet company! Now in its 24th season, this enchanting production is a sumptuous feast for the eyes and ears with over 200 performers in glittering costumes ushering you into a world where toys come to life and dreams can come true.
Led by New York City Ballet principal dancers Tiley Peck and Gonzalo Garcia and featuring the return of the Kalinin Russian Dance Troupe, this lavish extravaganza boasts sets packed with imagination and vibrant costumes that are guaranteed to keep children gaping in awe. The large cast bring Petipa's vision to stunning life, while Tchaikovsky's iconic music is played by a live orchestra. It's the perfect Christmas treat for all the family!
WHAT IS THE NUTCRACKER ABOUT?
We open on Christmas Eve, in the Stahlbaum house. There's music and presents and food, and the three Stahlbaum children are beside themselves with joy at the wonder of it all. There's danger on the horizon though, heralded by the arrival at the door of local magician Drosselmeyer. He brings bearing gifts for the children, including a wooden nutcracker. This is just the start of an adventure which will lead our characters into a war between mice and gingerbread men and through the Land of Sweets.
