Mississippi Metropolitan Ballet presents The Nutcracker - a Christmas tradition for 21 years. Set to music by Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky and choreography by MMB Artistic Director Jennifer Beasley, Assistant Artistic Director Erik Kegler, and Victoria Lee Ramsay, this ballet is a delight to children of all ages.
The Nutcracker tells the story of the Stahlbaum’s Christmas party where Clara receives a Nutcracker doll from Herr Drosselmeyer. Later, after the party, Clara awakens to find her Nutcracker doll has come to life. She witnesses a battle between the Nutcracker and his soldiers and Mouse King. The Nutcracker takes her on a journey through a forest of snow to the Kingdom of Sweets where many dances are performed in her honor, including a lovely dance by the Sugar Plum Fairy.
Come join us and witness the magical scenery, costumes and beautiful dancing.
NOTE: TEA PARTY TICKETS ARE SOLD SEPARATELY.
