Why See Aspen Santa Fe Ballet: The Nutcracker?

A holiday treat for the whole family

The Nutcracker is a holiday fairy tale about a young girl, Clara, and her very favorite Christmas. Her Godfather, Herr Drosselmeier, is a magical, mysterious character in her life. This Christmas he has a special gift for her, a beautiful Nutcracker doll. She receives the present from him at the annual family party. Very excited about the new doll, Clara wants to stay up all night with it, but her family sends her off to bed.

After everyone has left and the family is asleep, Clara sneaks downstairs to look at her Nut-cracker doll. She eventually falls asleep, and with a little help from Drosselmeier’s magic, her dreams begin.
