Movie Info

This 37-minute 3-D Imax film adaptation from E.T.A. Hoffman's story is a straight narrative fantasy rather than a ballet. Little Clara (Lotte Johnson) receives a Christmas gift of a nutcracker doll and that night witnesses toys expanding in size and coming to life. The Nutcracker Prince takes Clara to his enchanted sugar castle where she meets pastry chef Sugar Plum (Miriam Margolyes) who uses spun sugar to concoct the dancing Sugar Fairy (Tamara Rojo).more
