Why See Los Angeles Ballet: The Nutcracker?
CELEBRATING ITS TENTH ANNIVERSARY SEASON!
Reinventing Christmas for the West Coast, Los Angeles Ballet presents their annual production of The Nutcracker, landing at the Royce Hall in Los Angeles , CA , December 15 - 17, 2017
Be amazed at Uncle Drosselmeyer, Clara and her beloved Nutcracker Prince as they battle the Mouse King and his army, journey to the Land of Snow, and to the enchanted Palace of the Dolls where Clara's favorite toy companions come to life. Los Angeles Ballet is relatively new compared to other ballet companies, having only launched in 2006, and enjoyed a successful first season as the city's own professional ballet company.
What is The Nutcracker about?
One snowy Christmas Eve, at a great townhouse where a party is in full swing, local magician Herr Drosselmeyer arrives with gifts for the children, including a wooden nutcracker for Clara, the oldest child. When the clock strikes midnight, an adventure begins and the Nutcracker comes to life, leading our heroine Clara into a war between mice and tin soldiers, and into the enchanted Land of Sweets where a dance festival awaits them as a reward for defeating the dastardly mouse army.
