About the Nutcracker
Clara is given an enchanted Nutcracker doll on Christmas Eve. As midnight strikes, she creeps downstairs to find a magical adventure awaiting her and her Nutcracker.
The magician Drosselmeyer transforms the drawing room for a battle between mice and toy soldiers. During the battle, Clara saves the Nutcracker’s life – so breaking a magical spell that turned him from a boy to a toy – and the Mouse King is defeated. In celebration, Drosselmeyer sweeps Clara and the Nutcracker off to the Kingdom of Sweets, where they meet the Sugar Plum Fairy and take part in a wonderful display of dances. The next morning, Clara’s adventures seem to have been more than just a dream.
It’s the Second Annual Benefit Concert for the Annapolis Food Bank with Paul O’Brien and members of his musical his family. There will also be some other special musical guests.
Last year’s event was a gorgeous concert of contemporary celtic-folk-pop with lush family harmonies. But more than that, it raised several thousands of dollars (and many boxes of food) for the Food Bank. It’s a night that will put you in the spirit of the season.
Admission by freewill donation to the Foodbank of cash or non-perishable food.
