From her Uncle Drosselmeyer’s enchanting nephew, who charms Clara at the party, to the daring battle between the fierce Mouse King and brave soldiers lead by the heroic Nutcracker Prince, to the Land of Snow and eventual journey through the Land of Sweets, this magical holiday tradition is a delight all will enjoy.
Come and experience Clara’s dream world brought to life—from the enchanting party where she meets the charming nephew of her Uncle Drosselmeyer and is enthralled by dancing dolls, to the daring battle between the Mouse King and brave Nutcracker Prince. Lead by tiny reindeer, Clara and the Nutcracker Prince travel through the Land of Snow and journey to the enchanting Kingdom of Sweets, where they are entertained by various dancers – including the mysterious Arabian Coffee, the comical Mother Ginger, the dynamic Russian Trepak, and many more.
