Verse with lyrics / 4m, 4f. Plus Ensemble. Newly Revised! Based on the Dumas(pere) version used by Tchaikovsky in his ballet The Nutcracker. The well-loved story of a young girl from childhood to emotional maturity condensed into a single evenings' series of dreams brought forth by a fever. She learns some valuable lessons from the beautiful to the frightening apparitions she encounters until she is saved by a Nutcracker/Prince.
