Detroit's very own nutcracker returns!
While we've officially said a fond farewell to the sunnier climes of summer, winter has its own charms when the holidays kick in and that warm festive feeling starts to spread. Celebrate this special time of year in the company of the Clara, the Nutcracker Prince, and Michigan Opera Theatre Orchestra! Whimsical, transporting and a feast for all senses, this Yuletide first is set to become the hottest ticket of the city's Christmas time calendar. Each year the Michigan Opera Theatre Orchestra are joined buy a world-class ballet company to bring this timeless tale to life.
Lush costumes, a sweeping stage design, dazzling choreography and Tchaikovsky's score tell the tale of Clara, a young adventurer who awakes on Christmas eve to find the Nutcracker doll she was given as an early present has come to life! Together they take on the fearsome Mouse King, and travel to a mystical realm where toys come to life and the Sugar Plum Fairy reigns benevolently over the Land of Sweets.
