This show has given Tchaikovsky's classical ballet a modern twist. Similar to the original story, the show is centered on the Nutcracker Prince and Maria-Clara's adventures as they explore unknown land, fight against a gang of mice, and understand the real essence of Christmas.
In this show, Maria-Clara is kidnapped by a menacing gang with mouse ears and is rescued by a lowly nut cart owner named Myron the Nutcracker. Drosselmeyer comes in with a cape and a plume of black and pink hair. With the powers of time travel and telekinesis, he sends both to a nightclub in 1985 - The Land of Sweets. Pas De Dex, Dance of the Flowers and the Russian Dance are given their own distinctive street takes by an eclectic group of revellers.
