About “the Nutcracker”
The Nutcracker Ballet is based on the story "The Nutcracker and the King of Mice" written by E.T.A. Hoffman. Although what is seen on the stage today is different in detail from the original story, the basic plot remains the same; the story of a young German girl who dreams of a Nutcracker Prince and a fierce battle against a Mouse King with seven heads.
When Marius Petipa had the idea to choreograph the story into a ballet, it was actually based on a revision by Alexander Dumas, a well known French author. His version reflects more of what we have come to love as the Nutcracker Ballet.
The Nutcracker Ballet performance will be held at the Richland High School Auditorium located at 930 Long Avenue, Richland, Washington. The performance will start at 7:00 in the evening for Friday and Saturday schedule.
Tickets are $25 for adults, $18 for students and seniors and $13 for children. You can purchase your ticket online, charge by phone at 509-946-5417 or drop by at their ticket outlet at Dance Boutique in Richland, Washington.Posted by Colleen D. Lane on
