Join Clara and her family as they host their annual holiday party. Clara's mysterious uncle Herr Drosselmeyer arrives at the party and presents a special gift to Clara, a wondrous Nutcracker. That evening, Clara falls asleep with the Nutcracker by her side. She is awakened by a litter of scurrying mice and things strangely change around her. The mice engage in a battle with a battalion of toy soldiers. The Nutcracker wins the battle and transforms into a handsome prince. He invites Clara to the Land of the Sweets. The Guardian Angel and angels greet the visitors along with the Sugar Plum Fairy. They meet a spectacular revue of international entertainers who perform for Clara.
