March, April, May 2018

On a cosy Christmas Eve preparations are under way for the annual Christmas Party at Mayor Stahlbaum’s house.
A majestic Christmas tree is glowing with candle light. The Stahlbaum children, Clara and Fritz anxiously wait for family and friends to arrive. When the guests finally appear the party picks up with dancing and celebrations.

Godfather Drosselmeyer the toymaker arrives in disguise, armed with beautiful gifts. Toys for everyone. Fritz is given a beautiful drum but he is still jealous of the Nutcracker doll his sister receives. He snatches the Nutcracker and tosses it about with the other boys until it breaks. Clara is upset but Drosselmeyer fixes it with a handkerchief. Clara prepares a warm little bed under the Christmas Tree for her injured Nutcracker.
Before going to bed Clara sneaks back to check on her Nutcracker one last time but falls asleep under the tree with him in her arms.
Dreams, dreams, sweet dreams . . . . . .

And……..as the clock strikes midnight, strange things begin to happen!
The toys around the tree come to life while the room fills with an army of mice led by the fierce Mouse King.
The Nutcracker is trapped and captured by the mice army and the Mouse King.

A desperate fight ensues

Clara and the toy army fight the Mouse King until Clara drops him on the floor. All the mice run away carrying their defeated Mouse King. Clara and her brave toy army save her beloved Nutcracker.
the Nutcracker transforms into a handsome Prince. The Prince climbs on Clara’s sleigh and drives through a snowy forest where the snowflakes turn into dancing maidens.
After a magical journey they arrive in the land of sweets and are greeted by the Sugar Plum fairy,who takes them inside the candy castle and throws a lavish festival.

To Clara’s and the Prince’s joy there is still more to be seen . . . .
The festival concludes and everyone bids Clara and the Prince farewell.
