The popular German ballet is known all over the world and has been preformed by all different ballet groups. The story is about a young German girl, Clara, who dreams about being with a Nutcracker. But she can not be with her love without fighting off an evil mouse king with seven heads, which ended up only taking nothing more that hitting him in the head with a shoe.

It starts off with Clara at Christmas, she breaks a dear toy, a Nutcracker. Once the clock strikes midnight she begins to shrink and the Nutcracker, and tree and everything around her starts to come to life.

The Nutcracker wakes up and leads an army into war with the Mouse King and his army of mice. The Nutcracker is not match for the mice army as they quickly start to take him away. Clara then throws her shoe at the Mouse King and kills him. The Nutcracker turns into a prince and sweeps Clara off her feet.

There are many different worlds that you will travel through during the story from snow lands to candy worlds. While traveling these worlds they meet a Sugar Plum Fairy and dancing snowflakes. The ballet has everything from fight scenes to love stories. The beautiful costumes will bring the story to life in front of your eyes.

This ballet is a winter favorite. The Nutcracker has become a big part of Christmas. You can not walk through a Christmas decoration store without seeing something on the story. This is a great date idea for the winter season, it is something different in Tyler than going out to eat or to a movie.
