When young Clara’s beloved godfather brings her a peculiar Christmas gift, the simple act of holiday spirit inspires a midnight war on mice, and a journey to alternate realms. Charlottesville Ballet’s Nutcracker is magical and enthralling, as it follows Clara and her wooden friend—now a mysterious prince—deep into the Land of Snowflakes and Sweets to restore him to his true self. Accompanied by Tchaikovsky’s lively score, this classic ballet is a whimsical performance for all ages.

Saturday 12/22 $20-75, times vary. V. Earl Dickinson Building, 501 College Dr., PVCC. 961-5376.
