It’s Christmas and Clara receives a Nutcracker doll as a Christmas present. Later, unable to sleep with the excitement, Clara goes downstairs to get her Nutcracker doll and falls asleep under the Christmas tree. The stroke of midnight sounds and the magic begins. With all of the time-honoured elements in place, Clara is swept along into a world of mice and soldiers, to the snowflake scene, on to the kingdom of sweets and the delectable Sugar Plum Fairy.
