South Tulsa Children’s Ballet presents The Nutcracker! There will be three performances at the Robson PAC Black Box Theatre. Shows are on Saturday, December 1, at 2p and 7p, and Sunday, December 2, at 2p.
“The Nutcracker and the Mouse King” is a story written in 1816 by German author E. T. A. Hoffmann, in which young Marie Stahlbaum’s favorite Christmas toy, the Nutcracker, comes alive and, after defeating the evil Mouse King in battle, whisks her away to a magical kingdom populated by dolls. In 1892, the Russian composer Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky and choreographers Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov turned Alexandre Dumas‘s adaptation of the story into the ballet The Nutcracker.
