Synopsis: The glorious music of Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky is brought to life in this beautiful production.  A highlight of the holiday season in Dubuque for decades, the Dubuque City Youth Ballet’s production The Nutcracker Ballet is a must see for young and old alike.  It is Christmas Eve, and Clara and her parents are eagerly awaiting the guests. Clara’s mother and father present delightful Toy Soldiers who march and salute! All join in a joyous Christmas dance.   Clara’s Godmother tells the story of a Prince who was transformed into a wooden Nutcracker by an evil Rat.  As night falls, a lovely tree is lit, and all go off to sleep.  Clara dreams of magical lands both beautiful and frightening.  Journey with Clara to the Lands of Snow and Beautiful Dreams; experience the dreamland of the Sugarplum Fairy where the Nutcracker is transformed into a handsome Prince.  You don’t want to miss this holiday classic – perfect for the entire family!
