Don't Miss Yuletide Favorite The Nutcracker Ballet
Celebrate this festive season with the time-honored tradition of the Nutcracker Ballet, brought to dazzling life by the Gulf coast Symphony in partnership with the Gulfshore Ballet. Set to Tchaikovsky's spine-tingling score, choreography from the Gulfshore Ballet's artistic directors Lliana Lopez and Franklin Gamero, as well as lavish costumes and sweeping set designs, punctuate the story of a little girl and a big Christmas time adventure.
It's Christmas eve and all through the house, creatures in the form of pint-sized heroine Clara and her Nutcracker Prince are stirring. Given the doll as an early Christmas present during her parent's Yuletide party earlier that evening, Clara awakes at midnight to find it has transformed into a real life prince. Together they embark on a grand journey to a magical land populated by dancing sweets, the Sugar Plum Fairy and the fearsome Mouse King.
