On Christmas Eve, the party is over and the grand living room in Masha's house is silent. When the clock sticks midnight, the Christmas tree suddenly begins to grow to dizzying heights, and Masha finds herself in a world of dolls, where occurs a battle between an army of toy soldiers and the mice. Masha bravely fights and rescues the Nutcracker Prince, and is invited in reward to the beautiful Land of Snow and the Land of Sweets.

The Nutcracker, a classic set to Tchaikovsky's colorful musical gem, has enjoyed enormous popularity all over the world as a winter treat for family and friends. It is a stream of brilliant dancing, including the beautiful adagio and magical dance in the Land of Snow for Masha and the Nutcracker Prince in Act I, the brilliant character dances and the Grand Pas de deux in Act II. Join us on a captivating Christmas journey with Masha!
