Nutcracker Sweets

The Indianapolis Ballet will reimagine the Tchaikovsky classic with ten matinee performances at Newfields that follow CDC guidelines to keep audiences safe and healthy. The show will run for approximately 1 hour and have no intermission. It is recommended for an audience that is ages 4 years old and up.

About the Show

Mysterious Drosselmeyer has transformed the Nutcracker into the Snow King, who introduces the Snow Queen and the Snowflakes to Clara and guides them through the glittering night sky to the Land of the Sweets.

When they arrive, they are greeted by the Dew Drop and are treated to a spectacular festival of colorful dances. Clara meets amazing characters performing Chinese Tea, Arabian Coffee, and Russian Trepak dancers. Marzipan dancers play their mirliton flutes, Polichinelles invite Clara into their joyful circle, the Dew Drop returns with her retinue of Flowers, and the procession culminates in the elegant and exciting dances of the Sugar Plum Fairy with her Cavalier. With these fantastical sights and sounds swirling around her, Clara wonders if all these amazing events are truly happening, or if she is in the midst of an incredible dream…
