Filled with enchanted toys, mischievous mice and sugar plum fairies, the tale of Clara (or Masha, in the case of this Russian production) and her magical Nutcracker Prince has enraptured generations of kids and kids-at-heart. Now, the Russian Grand Ballet comes to Shreveport with its traditional yet dynamic version of "The Nutcracker", featuring some of Russia's brightest, most limber ballet stars.
