It was the night before Christmas...

On Christmas Eve, a little girl named Clara falls asleep after a party at her home and dreams herself, or does she? into a fantastic world where toys become larger than life. Her beloved Nutcracker comes to life and defends her from the Mouse King, then is turned into a Prince after Clara saves his life.

Expect a joyous explosion of colour as Melbourne City Ballet bring to life this audience favourite across Victoria and South Australia!
