Basel’s favorite Christmas classic! It is the charming story of Clara and her Nutcracker, who comes alive in her dream and transforms into a handsome Prince. He accompanies her on an adventurous journey during which they defend themselves against the King Rat and his army of mice, admire the swirling waltz of the Snowflakes and are finally led by the Sugarplum Fairy into her enchanted Kingdom. Accompany Clara and her Nutcracker Prince as they dance to the beautiful strains of Tchaikovsky’s magical score.
