Step into a simpler time filled with sweet dreams and Christmas magic. The origin of the Nutcracker, a classic Christmas Story, is a fairy tale ballet in two acts centered on a family’s Christmas Eve celebration. Alexandre Dumas Père’s adaptation of the story by E.T.A. Hoffmann was set to music by Tchaikovsky and originally choreographed by Marius Petipa. The story centers on a young girl’s Christmas Eve and her awakening to the wider world and romantic love.
Listen as a live symphony orchestra plays Tchaikovsky’s famed score. The Nutcracker is the perfect story ballet for the young and the young at heart. Come celebrate this cherished holiday tradition at Durham Performing Arts Center and relive the dream with Tchaikovsky’s timeless score.
