A giant Christmas tree decorates the Clara and Fritz home on Christmas Eve when Drosselmeyer arrives with a wooden nutcracker in the shape of a little man. As the clock strikes midnight the nutcracker comes to life and transforms the Christmas celebration into a magical journey.
The classic holiday tale is told through the choreography of Jaime Pinto along with music by Tchaikovsky and will be performed at Santiago's Teatro Municipal through December 30.
The family-friendly performance marks the end of the Teatro Municipal's 2015 ballet season and will feature Luis Ortigoza, Rodrigo Guzman, Maite Ramirez, Lidia Olmos and Jose Manuel Ghiso, among other dancers of the Santiago Ballet Company ("Ballet de Santiago").
Through December 30, 2015
