The Nutcracker Fantasy promises to bring forth enthralling performances, dances and routines as one hundred and fifty of the most talented dancers prepare to blow your mind away. Choreographer, Philip Brunelle along with his regalia of professional musicians will try to recreate the magic of the legendary Tchaikovsky. Completed in 1892, The Nutcracker presents a two act ballet that was originally created by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, Lev Ivanov and Marius Petipa. Adapted from the story titled The Nutcracker and the Mouse King by E.T.A. Hoffman, the debut performance of the ballet was held at Mariinsky Theater in 1892. It was after the massive success of Tchaikovsky’s The Sleeping Beauty that the composer was approached by Imperial Theaters’ director, Ivan Vsevolozhsky to compose a ballet and an opera. Tchaikovsky paired up with his former partner, Marius Pepita who chose Hoffman’s story for purposes of adaptation. With this the two started working on a double-bill that would later on be considered as one of the best works of Tchaikovsky.
The two act libretto presents the magical story of a little Russian girl named Clara who dreams about magical lands, fairies, evil mice and a handsome nutcracker Prince on Christmas Eve. The ballet starts at a Christmas gathering where two siblings are anxiously waiting to get their Christmas presents. Clara gets a wooden nutcracker that has been carved in the shape of a small man. That night when Clara goes to sleep, she is taken into another world in her dreams, where the wooden nutcrackers transforms into a handsome Prince and saves Clara from the evil Mouse King. Together the two embark on a magical journey towards the Land of Sweets which brings forth a memorable celebration. Join Clara and the Nutcracker, as the State Theater of Minneapolis invites you to attend the Nutcracker Fantasy showcase.
