It's Christmas Eve...a night for magic. Anything could happen...

As the curtain opens on the Nutcracker Ballet, music and merriment fill the house as the Stahlbaum family welcomes guests to their annual Christmas party.

Marie and her brother Fritz dance and play together as many of their friends and family arrive. Suddenly, Marie’s mysterious uncle, Herr Drosselmeyer, appears with gifts. To everyone’s amazement, he introduces two life-size mechanical dolls that he has made that can actually dance.
Marie becomes upset when it appears he has no present for her...

Like magic, he presents a toy Nutcracker and Marie is overjoyed. Her brother Fritz, however, becomes jealous and breaks the Nutcracker. But Marie's uncle magically repairs the doll and she carefully places it underneath the Christmas tree. After the party, Marie can't sleep. She sneaks into the living room and falls asleep with the Nutcracker in her arms....and the adventure begins!
