After Drosselmeyer navigates the sleigh through the blizzard to safety in
the sunny Land of the Sugar Plum Fairy, the Sugar Plum Fairy commands a festival in honor of Clara, featuring
charming dances from around the world. As the celebration draws to a
close in Act II, Clara receives her greatest Christmas wish and sees herself transformed
into a beautiful Princess to dance in the arms of her Nutcracker Prince in this breathtaking pas de deux.
