If you haven't gone into Christmas overload by Wednesday, Dec. 19, Agua Caliente Casino Resort and Spa will present "The Nutcracker."
The holiday classic, which will be performed by the Moscow Ballet, 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.
The ballet's most famous numbers 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.
Tickets for the 8 p.m. show are $25, $35 and $50, and are available at the Agua Caliente box office and www.startickets.com.
It's really not the holiday season without seeing at least one performance of "The Nutcracker."
