Begin your holiday season as a guest at the Stahlbaum family holiday celebration and share in Clara’s dreamlike journey with her Nutcracker Prince. Watch as Clara battles the evil Rat King, dances with the Snow Maidens, and accompanies the Sugarplum Fairy through the Land of the Sweets. Enjoy the enchanted music of Tchaikovsky’s beautiful score and the beautiful voices of the Indianapolis Children’s Choir. Young and old alike will delight in this holiday tradition.

Featuring guest artists Emma Love Suddarth & Price Suddarth (CIDE alumnus) of Pacific Northwest Ballet as the Sugarplum Fairy and Cavalier!

Sugar Plum Fairy Dessert Party

In addition to our performances, CIDE presents the Sugar Plum Fairy Dessert Party prior to each Nutcracker matinee performance at 12:30pm.

Begin your day with our Sugar Plum Fairy Dessert Party. Sit down and have a treat. While enjoying time with your group you will have the chance to make a festive craft. Then you can head over to our story time corner where you will be told the story of the Nutcracker to get you ready to watch the show. Finish off your experience by having your picture taken in Clara’s sleigh with Clara, the Nutcracker, and the Sugar Plum Fairy.

Tickets for this experience are available as a ticket add-on prior to matinee performances. All individuals attending the dessert party must have a ticket, regardless of age. Please order tickets early as this event sells out very quickly.
