Synopsis

ACT 1

Christmas Eve at the Stahlbaum's House

The Stahlbaums are preparing for their annual Christmas Eve party. The house is decorated with ornaments, wreaths, stockings, mistletoe, and, in the center of it all, a majestic Christmas tree. The Stahlbaum children, Fritz and Clara, wait anxiously for their family and friends to arrive.

As the guests begin to appear, the party gathers steam, with much dancing and celebratory laughter. Soon, a mysterious guest arrives. Dressed in dark clothing, he frightens Fritz, but not Clara, who knows that he is Godfather Drosselmeyer, the toymaker. His surprise arrival is warmly accepted, and all the children dance and carry on with laughter.

The Gift of the Nutcracker

The celebration is interrupted again when Drosselmeyer reveals to the children that he has brought them gifts. The girls receive beautiful china dolls, and the boys receive bugles. Fritz is given a beautiful drum, but Clara is given the best gift of all, a nutcracker. Fritz grows jealous, snatches the nutcracker from Clara, and plays a game of toss with the other boys.

It isn't long until the nutcracker breaks. Clara is upset, but Drosselmeyer fixes it with a handkerchief. Drosselmeyer’s nephew presents Clara with a small makeshift bed that he puts under the Christmas tree for her injured toy.

The party grows late, and the children become sleepy. Everyone generously thanks the Stahlbaums before they leave. As Clara’s family retires to bed, she checks on her nutcracker one last time and ends up falling asleep under the Christmas tree with him in her arms.

Attack of the Mouse King

At the stroke of midnight, Clara wakes up to a frightening scene. The house, the tree, and the toys seem to be getting larger. Is she shrinking? Out of nowhere, large mice dressed in army uniforms, led by their Mouse King, begin to circle the room while the toys and Christmas tree come to life. Clara’s nutcracker has also come to life. He groups the soldier toys into battle formation and fights the mouse army.

The Mouse King traps the Nutcracker in the corner, but the Nutcracker can’t overcome the Mouse King’s strength. Clara makes a desperate move to save her Nutcracker from defeat and throws her slipper at the Mouse King, hitting him directly on the head. The Nutcracker is able to overcome the stunned Mouse King and claims victory.

 

The mice army quickly carries away their king

Clara falls onto what had been the toy nutcracker’s bed, overwhelmed by the moment. As angels and delightful music h
