Staged by the Coastal Youth Ballet Theatre, artistic directors Liza Mata and Karen Mata bring to the stage the timeless story of the Nutcracker, set to the classic music of Peter Tchaikovsky. “The Nutcracker” tells the magical story of Clara, a young girl who is given a magical nutcracker doll on Christmas Eve by her eccentric uncle and godfather, Herr Drosselmeyer. Clara and her transformed Nutcracker Prince battle the frightful Mouse King before embarking on a journey through the Land of the Snow. With the help of the Snow Queen, Clara and her prince, together with Herr Drosselmeyer, travel to the Land of the Sweets where they are entertained by the Sugar Plum Fairy, her Cavalier and her Entourage of Sweets. The annual, highly anticipated production features 60 of the area’s most talented young dancers together with CYBT ballerina Kiely Elizabeth Clark as the Sugar Plum Fairy and New York City-based guest artist Mikhail Ilyin as the Cavalier.
