The Fairytale Nutcracker

Études de Ballet stages an annual production of The Fairytale Nutcracker. Students 5 years and older are invited to audition. It has become a much-loved tradition with our ÉdB families and the Naples community and is a great way to kick off the holiday season.

About The Fairytale Nutcracker

The Fairytale Nutcracker is a joyous show with stunning original choreography and Tchaikovsky’s beloved score. You will see dancing dolls, waltzing snowflakes, prancing reindeer and marching toy soldiers. Our charming tale opens at a grand Christmas party where the mysterious Uncle Drosselmeyer presents his niece Clara, with an enchanting nutcracker. A wondrous adventure ensues as the Rat King is defeated, snowflakes blanket the stage and Clara journeys through a forest and on to the Land of the Sweets.
