This nutcracker mask was created for the a production of the Nutcracker in 2009. The mask allows for full range of vision as well as ease of wear. In spite of its size it is lightweight.
The Nutcracker Ballet was written by Tchaikovsky in 1892. It is a ballet in two acts. The first act is the narrative that sets up the 2nd act. In act one we meet Clara who is given a nutcracker as a Christmas gift by her uncle Herr Drosselmeyer. Act two is a fantasy journey through many lands.
This wonderful mask is part of long tradition of this ballet as traditional holiday entertainment.
