Portland Ballet’s A Victorian Nutcracker returns to the stage this holiday season with newly designed backdrops and set pieces inspired by Portland’s Victoria Mansion.
A Victorian Nutcracker is a retelling of the classic story of a young girl’s Christmas Eve dream, brought on by the curious gift of a nutcracker, in which she travels to the Sugar Plum Fairy’s Land of the Sweets. This version, with characters pulled directly from Portland’s past, is sure to please audience members of all ages.
