This fantastical expansion of a holiday classic is not a ballet, but rather a play about one loving familyâ€™s recovery from a terrible and surprising loss. Based on the original E.T.A. Hoffmann story, the play centers on young Clara’s journey to save Christmas and bring her broken family back togetherâ€”making this production a splendidly empowering Christmas story and a wholly different take on the classic tale! This contemporary holiday theater piece weaves together riveting dialogue, astonishing puppetry, original songs and spellbinding spectacle to tell a heartwarming, darkly moving story of magic and hope.
