  5. Youth Ballet of Texas presents Krakatuk: A Nutcracker Prequel

    November 30, 2018, 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM @ McKinney Performing Arts Center

    Come and experience the Youth Ballet of Texas's unique story ballet. Krakatuk: A Nutcracker Prequel is the story of 'The Hard Nut' from the original E.T.A. Hoffmann tale Nussknacker und Mausekonig. This tale of mice, greed, and royalty, is told as a bedtime story and danced to the beautiful music of Tchaikovsky, Offenbach, and Herold. Krakatuk is a treat for the whole family, and a perfect ballet for anyone who has ever wondered why the Mouse King is after the Nutcracker, why the Sugar Plum Fairy knows the Nutcracker, and why Marie's (Clara’s) devotion sets him free.
