Stoughton Nutcracker Ballet
Directed by Coleen Kehl Barraza
It is Christmas Eve at the Silberhaus home, and a lavish celebration is underway. Guests have arrived and are about to toast the lighting of the tree, when a knock on the door announces the arrival of the mysterious and magical Uncle Drosselmeyer. His magic begins with dancing dolls, gifts for all the children, and a "Nutcracker" doll for Clara. The party has ended and Clara returns to find her beloved "Nutcracker". Falling asleep on the sofa, she dreams mice are stealing the presents, lead by the wicked Mouse Queen. Toy soldiers under the command of the Prince (who resembles Drosselmeyer's nephew) defend the frightened Clara. Clara and her Prince are summoned by the Snow Queen to the Land of Snow and Sweets. The Christmas Angels tell the Sugar Plum Fairy of her arrival and she is appointed Pricess. Clara is entertained by dancing dolls from all parts of the world. Clara, along with her Prince are transported back to her ome in a sleigh.
