Clara & the Nutcracker is a charming rendition of the classic holiday tale about young Clara and her adventures. Starting with a magnificent Toy Shop and Christmas party, the story unfolds into a battle with the Prince and Mouse King, a land of snow, and a meeting with the Sugar Plum Fairy in the Kingdom of Sweets. Beautiful, handmade, costumes and amusing, lively choreography transport the audience to Clara's world in the late 1700s. Children and teens fill the ensemble and principal roles as Clara and the Snow Queen in this Memphis treasure. Audiences have been delighted for years by the exquisite classical training and performing skills of the Children's Ballet Theater.
