Published in 1916, E.T.A. Hoffman’s “Nutcracker and Mouse King” is the source of inspiration for Nutcracker ballet, set to Peter Tchaikovsky’s score, first presented in St. Petersburg in 1892. The San Francisco Ballet debuted Nutcracker in the U.S. in 1944. Set on Christmas Eve in 1915, a young girl named Clara dreams of faraway lands, snow-covered landscapes, a nutcracker doll who becomes a prince, and a most memorable Mouse King. Nutcracker is the perfect holiday event for children, family and friends to celebrate the season.

Note: This is a package for 8
