Tchaikovsky's most famous ballet, The Nutcracker, is performed annually at Young Auditorium by the accomplished dancers from The Dance Factory. The Nutcracker Ballet is based on the story "The Nutcracker and the King of Mice" written by E.T.A. Hoffman. It's the story of a young Gernam girl who dreams of a Nutcracker Prince and a fierce battle against a Mouse King.
