You are cordially invited to join Tucson's own Ballet Rincon as it presents its 16th Annual production of Tchaikovsky's The Nutcracker Ballet!


On Christmas Eve a young girl, named Clara, is given a Nutcracker Doll at her family Christmas party by her much loved Uncle Drosselmeyer, a mysterious, magical inventor. The doll is broken by her jealous brother Fritz at the party, but this is no ordinary Nutcracker as Clara learns that night. 


When the house is at rest, Clara goes downstairs to check on her beloved doll. In the shadows, Uncle Drosselmeyer casts a spell over the Nutcracker Doll, as the Mouse King attacks. On rescuing Clara from the Mouse King, the doll turns into the Nutcracker Prince. He takes Clara on a magical journey through the Land of the Snow, to the Land of Sweets, where the Sugar Plum Fairy honors the couple with sweet entertainment from around the world.
