The Nutcracker: Short & Sweet

Choreographer: Nicolina Lawson


Join Ballet North Texas for their 2020 production of The Nutcracker: Short & Sweet. Choreographed by Artistic Director, Nicolina Lawson, and set to Tchaikovsky's magical score, this one act version will still include all of the favorite characters from the dancing snowflakes to the Kingdom of Sweets.

We begin our story where the Nutcracker has defeated the Rat King and he is transformed back into a handsome prince. He takes Clara into the beautiful Snow Pine Forest escorted by the Snow Queen and through the flurry of dancing snowflakes.

Clara arrives in the Land of the Sweets escorted by a chorus of angels. Here, the Nutcracker Prince and Sugar Plum Fairy are reunited, and they introduce Clara to all the wonderful treats of the land. Clara and the Nutcracker Prince tell the story of the battle with the mice and the defeat of the Rat King that broke the ancient spell that had been cast upon the Prince. Everyone is delighted that the Nutcracker Prince and Clara are safe. The Sugarplum Fairy leads Clara to a glittering throne, where she can enjoy sweets and dances from all the lands: Hot Chocolate from Spain, Tea from China, Coffee from Arabia, Russian Ribbon Candy, Italian Marzipan Crystals, and Mother Ginger, with her little Polichinelles. Next comes the Waltz of the Flowers, with a shimmering Dewdrop Fairy dancing among the lovely blooms. Finally, the Sugar Plum Fairy and her Nutcracker Prince
dance a grand pas de deux in honor of their guests. A magnificent grand finale brings the festival to its thrilling conclusion and it is now time for Clara to say goodbye. Everyone returns to bid them farewell, as she rides off into the dawn, waking on the couch she fell
asleep on with her Nutcracker in hand.

Was it all a dream or … did it really happen?
