Festival Ballet Providence, Rhode Island's premier ballet company, presents THE NUTCRACKER. This beloved holiday tale of a Nutcracker doll given to Clara takes the young girl from a grand Christmas party, complete with puppet theater, dancing dolls and a tree that grows 25 feet in height, to a midnight battle of toy soldiers vs. giant mice lead by their villainous Mouse Queen. Clara's protector, a life-sized Nutcracker, leads her through a snow-covered forest and dozens of dancing Swarovski snowflakes to the luscious Kingdom of Sweets, where the Sugar Plum Fairy and her Cavalier introduce the couple to brightly-costumed dancers from around the world. THE NUTCRACKER, featuring a return performance by Archie THE NUTCRACKER dog, is a holiday gift not to be missed.
