It's not officially holiday time until productions of "The Nutcracker" start popping up everywhere.
The first production of the season is at Harrah's Rincon Saturday, Nov. 10 at 8 p.m.
For the uninitiated, "The Nutcracker" tells the story of Clara, a young girl who receives a Nutcracker prince doll for Christmas and loves it so much she falls asleep under the tree protecting it.
She dreams of visiting faraway lands with her prince and hears tales of the battle with the Mouse King.
Among the ballet's most famous moments are the dance of the Sugar Plum Fairies, the battle between the Nutcracker prince and the Mouse King, the celebration of dances and the final pas de deux.
The Harrah's Rincon show will be performed by the world famous Moscow Ballet.
Tickets for the Harrah's Rincon show are available through Ticketmaster for $40, $50 and $60.
