The Cincinnati Ballet stretched and practiced their pirouettes just in time for this holiday season's return of Tchaikovsky's "The Nutcracker." Enter a world of magic and wonder as Clara helps the Nutcracker win the war against the Mouse King before embarking on an adventure to see the Sugar Plum Fairy.

A celebration awaits once the Sugar Plum Fairy finds out Clara saved the Nutcracker, who was, in reality, a prince. Clara has the trip of a lifetime in just one night, but was it all a dream? Decide for yourself once you see this production of the holiday classic. Through Dec. 23. Tickets start at $31. Aronoff Center for the Arts, 650 Walnut St., Downtown. cballet.org.
