Dance Wisconsin presents the holiday classic The Nutcracker. A Madison Original, it is the only local performance that includes: dancers, a live orchestra and magical vocals. Dance Wisconsin's Nutcracker has over eighty performers, from Southern and Central Wisconsin, dancing along with the Dance Wisconsin Orchestra and the vocals of the Monona Grove High School Singers.

Join Clara as she receives a special Nutcracker Doll from Heir Drosselmeyer during a party thrown by her family. Allow yourself to be transported by Heir Drosselmeyer's magic as he brings various dolls and toys to life. Watch with excitement as Clara awakens from a dream to find the Nutcracker life size and battling The Mouse King with his troops. After the Nutcracker's victory Clara is transported to a fantasy land where the Snow Queen and King perform with their snowflakes. In Act II Clara is travels through Candyland where she is entertained by dancers from all over the world including a Sugar Plum Fairy and her Cavalier. Finally, rejoice with Clara as she returns home in a glorious sleigh.
