The story of the musical presentation starts off at the house of Dr. Silberhaus. It’s the eve of Christmas and friends and family are enjoying a gathering at the mansion as carolers cheer on the streets and snowflakes cover the ground completely. Children gather around the Christmas tree anxiously waiting to open their presents. Their wait is finally over when Silberhaus family’s godfather, Herr Drosselmeyer joins the party. The godfather who is also a famous inventor presents the two Silberhaus children, Fritz and Clara with their Christmas presents. Clara who is Drosselmeyer’s favorite godchild receives a wooden nutcracker. With this the godfather tells all the children the story of the Nutcracker and the Mouse King, using the wooden nutcracker as a puppet. All the children listen to the magical tale, absolutely spell bounded and mesmerized by the fantasy.
Soon the party ends and everyone makes their way to their warm and comfortable beds. Clara lays the wooden nutcracker beside her and soon falls asleep until she is awaken by the sound of a clock. Clara lets out a shriek as she sees countless mice approaching her from all directions. Suddenly the nutcracker that is lying beside her comes to life and starts attacking the mice. Gaining victory against the Mouse King, the nutcracker then transforms into a living boy. He then takes Clara by the hand and escorts her towards a majestic golden sleigh as the two make their way to the Snow Queen.
