Don’t miss “Clara and The Nutcracker”, a delightful version of E.T.A. Hoffman’s classic tale “The Nutcracker Suite”.  Holt Ballet Conservatory and Miners Foundry join hands to bring to life this delightful story of family unity, childhood fantasy, and magical transformations.  Set on Christmas Eve, at the foot of a Christmas tree and seen through the eyes of a child’s imagination, “Clara and The Nutcracker” tells the tale of Clara, whose Christmas present of a toy nutcracker solider inspires a magical dream filled with battling mice, dancing sugar canes, and visits from ambassadors from afar.  This year’s production boasts new costumes, new choreography, additional music, and exemplary dancing, featuring some of Nevada County’s most accomplished young ballet dancers.  With Pyotr Illyich Tchaikovsky’s timeless musical score, you won’t find better holiday entertainment.

Children will be enchanted and adults will be inspired by this performance to remember!

Holt Ballet Conservatory opened in 2011 and specializes in traditional classical ballet training for students aged 3 and up.
