Christmas in Oshkosh with WOSH!
Before there was Toy Story, there was The Nutcracker. Masha, one of ballet’s pluckiest heroines, journeys to a land where toys come to life. The Nutcracker, based on a fairy tale by Hoffman isn’t just for Christmas. Tchaikovsky’s lustrous music and the magnificent choreography of Marius Petipa have made this beloved story a must-see for children of all ages. Russian Grand Ballet’s full-length classical production features Russia’s brightest ballet stars.
