So if you haven't taken your kids to a Nutcracker show yet, this is your chance to introduce them to this important holiday classic. Taking inspiration from the short story "The Nutcracker and the Mouse King" by E. T. A. Hoffmann, the show's plot follows Mayor Stahlbaum and his wife's preparation for their annual gathering on Christmas Eve. As the celebration continues through the night, Drosselmeyer brings gifts to the children, including four lifelike moving dolls. To the dismay of the children, especially the siblings Clara and Fritz, the dolls were not given to them. Instead, the siblings were given a nutcracker in the shape of a man, which Clara instantly liked. That night did not end there for Clara, as after her family went to bed, she sneaked back to the parlor to see her precious nutcracker. To her surprise, she encountered something truly magical.
Told through a series of exquisite ballet dances and a larger-than-life production, The Nutcracker will awe and inspire kids of all ages. So bring your entire family to the McAllen Performing Arts Center this December 11 Sunday, and be enthralled by the magnificence that only Rio Grande Valley Ballet can offer.
