No performance encapsulates the Christmas season quite like "The Nutcracker." Adapted from E.T.A. Hoffmann's classic story "The Nutcracker and the Mouse King," the ballet's choreography and musical score exude an incredible sense of magic.
The musical score of "The Nutcracker" has easily become one of the most recognizable arrangements of ballet. It has been used as an accompaniment for countless Christmas performances, movies and television specials, but this performance takes it one step further. Dancers Cyrus "Glitch" Spencer, JR Tight Eyex and James Derrick step on stage with the California Philharmonic Orchestra to deliver a performance that had everyone cheering.
