More about the story of The Nutcracker:

The Nutcracker is the tale of young Clara and her mischievous Uncle, Herr Drosselmeyer, who concocts a fantasy world for her. The magical story includes a growing Christmas tree, a Nutcracker doll that comes to life and battles the Mouse King, a sleigh ride through falling snow, a showcase of dancing treats presented by the Sugar Plum Fairy and much, much more. Saint Louis Ballet's high production values bring the story to life with special effects such as smoke, glitter, strobe and pyrotechnics. Each year, Horiuchi adds additional elements and dazzling effects.
