It is Christmas Eve; Clara is beside herself with anticipation! It is her family’s annual Christmas party. The tree is beautifully decorated, music is playing, and the table is laden with every imaginable holiday treat. The air is alive with excitement as the guests begin to arrive. As the evening progresses Godfather Drosselmeyer arrives with gifts for Clara and her brother Fritz. Drosselmeyer presents Clara with a beautiful nutcracker, she is ecstatic as she dances around the room with her beloved toy. Clara represents the irrepressible joy of childhood wonderment.
This is the Clara part of “The Gift” — a piece which includes Clara, and Grandfather Drosselmeyer.
