Bordentown sets the scene of CNJBT’s ‘The Nutcracker’

Dec 02, 2014 11:34AM, Published by Community News Service, Categories: News




This year, Bordentown is set to play a role in The Central NJ Ballet Theatre’s production of the holiday classic “The Nutcracker.” Set for Saturday, Dec. 13 at 7 p.m., the production will take place at North Hanover Upper Elementary School on Monmouth Road in Wrightstown.

Joseph Bonaparte’s Pointe Breeze Estate is the setting of the ballet, which tells the story of how young Clara is carried away by the magic of a mysterious nutcracker through a holiday adventure.

The ballet takes place in the year 1816 at the Pointe Breeze Estate, Bordentown. As tradition, Mrs. Bonaparte throws a lavish Christmas party for the well to do ladies and their children. Clara and Fritz, her own children, are among the guests.

While the party is in full swing, Uncle Drosselmeyer arrives to entertain the children with stories and brings with him his magical harlequin, ballerina and solider doll. This year Uncle Drosselmeyer has a special gift for Clara; a magical nutcracker.
 
As Clara’s family retires to bed, she checks on her nutcracker one last time, but falls asleep under the Christmas tree.

It is then that her magical adventure begins, as she encounters the Mouse Queen, Snow Queen, the Land of Sweets, all with her Nutcracker Prince.
