Mystic Ballet presents A Mystic Nutcracker. Connecticut's Mystical Nutcracker is a magical, memory making experience for all ages,
Tchaikovsky's holiday masterpiece sparkles with original choreography and characters created by the artists of Mystic Ballet.
This version follows the enchanting adventures of
Clara, through two acts and four scenes, with a time travel twist. In central park at the turn of the century Clara (portrayed by Hiroko Maehara) receives a Nutcracker as a gift on
Christmas Eve, encounters a mysterious aristocrat, and meets the young man of her dreams, before embarking on a wondrous journey through the frost and snow, to a Land of Sweets. When
Santa's Workshop proves too chaotic for her taste, she is transported to the Kingdom of Crystals, where Clara must rescue her Prince (danced by Marko Micov) from the spell of the
powerful Rat King (created by Aleksander Subotic). Connecticut's Mystical Nutcracker is edge of your seat entertainment, without "is it over yet" parts it's the perfect
way for families to ring in the holiday season.
