The best gifts don’t require batteries and children know this best. Imagination has no boundaries but in dreams it takes one into worlds where ‘impossible’ does not exist. Pyotr Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker, under the spell of The San Diego Ballet and the San Diego Children’s Choir will unfurl cascades of snowflakes, sugarplum fairies, battling militant rats taking on leaping Cossacks, an Arabian sojourn for two, and more – all from a young girl’s surreal dream. Pyotr’s perfect score is ready to sprinkle on the fantasy, and innocence is prime grounds for an endless dance of creations.
