The Nutcracker

A simple gift transforms a festive holiday party into an enchanted battle with militant mice and a princely hero. Join Clara, her Nutcracker Prince, and the talented young cast of the Champaign Urbana Ballet on a magical journey to a shimmering land of confectionary fairies, glittering global flair, and Tchaikovsky’s beloved score performed live by the Champaign-Urbana Symphony Orchestra.
