Livonia Michigan Nutcracker

Nutcracker Ballet – A Plymouth, Canton Holiday Tradition

It truly is the most wonderful time of the year, isn’t it? Even though there isn’t a flake of snow to be seen anywhere on the short- (or long-) range forecast, we can’t help but have a little spring in our steps during the month of December – so much to do and so much to enjoy in Plymouth, Canton, and Northville! One thing that you might like to add to your event calendar is to see a local production of The Nutcracker Ballet, featuring talented dancers from Plymouth, Canton, and other parts of southeast Michigan.

The Story of the Nutcracker

Yes, there really is a story behind this ballet! Learn all about this traditional holiday tale by CLICKING HERE. It is based on a magical story written by E.T.A. Hoffman and set to the music of the legendary composer, Tchaikovsky. The story is set around a young girl who receives a nutcracker at her family’s Christmas Eve party. She later dreams of him coming to life and their battle with the evil Mouse King, followed by a magical visit to the enchanted Land of Sweets and encounter with the Sugar Plum Fairy. This story, and this performance by LCBC, is truly a delight for all ages. And, so affordably priced that you can bring the whole family!
