Austin Eyler & Nayara Lopes

Join hands with young Marie and her beloved wooden doll as she leaps through a melodic dreamscape of flittering fairies, fearless toy soldiers and embattled mice. Beloved by generations, The Nutcracker® opens audiences’ eyes to the fantastical, relinquishing the theater behind for a two-act waltz through a world of child-like wonder.

Set in motion by the elusive Drosselmeyer, composition, stagecraft and uncompromising technique reveal their purest expressions in the Lands of Snow and Sweets, culminating in the show’s signature pas de deux.
