Clara and The Nutcracker” is a delightful abbreviated version of the classic holiday tale by E.T.A. Hoffmann, featuring choreography by Royal Ballet’s famous choreographer Peter Wright.

Holt Ballet Conservatory’s “short story” tells the tale of Clara, whose Christmas present of a toy nutcracker solider inspires a magical dream for Clara, and an opportunity for classically trained ballet dancers to showcase and share their carefully crafted talent.
