Tiny tutu-twirlers, ballet connoisseurs and self-described kids at heart experience the wondrous awe that is this timeless Christmas spectacle. After the clock strikes midnight, follow one little girl as she tumbles into a fantastical world of sugarplum fairies, toy soldiers and mischievous mice. And if memorable music by Tchaikovsky, magical sets and captivating costumes don’t make your jaw drop, then crystal-shaped snowflakes fluttering into the audience and a 12-foot tree that grows 20 feet right before your eyes surely will. Ages 5 and up.
