Stoner Winslett's The Nutcracker, heralded as "perfect" by The New York Times, returns to the Carpenter Theatre to celebrate the
From the opening notes of Tchaikovsky's famous overture, audiences are whisked into the warm, candlelit drawing room of the Silberhaus family, buzzing
with celebrations of Christmas. To the delight of the family's young daughter, Clara, Dr. Drosselmeyer, the mysterious toymaker, and his handsome nephew arrive with a special
gift – a wooden nutcracker doll – that captures the girl's imagination. As darkness falls, Dr. Drosselmeyer's magic begins to work, setting in motion fantastical
events that will fill Clara's dreams: a battle beneath the branches of an enchanted Christmas tree, the transformation of the nutcracker doll into the young Nutcracker Prince,
and a journey from a snow-covered forest to the far-off Kingdom of Sweets.
Join the Russian Bear, the Chinese Dragon and the Mouse King as they celebrate the magic of
the holidays with Richmond Ballet!
The Nutcracker is performed in the Carpenter Theatre at Richmond CenterStage and lasts approximately 2 hours.
