Clara's dream unfolds as Christmas Eve arrives.  Uncle Drosselmeyer gives Fritz some toy soldiers and Clara a wooden Nutcracker. When Clara kisses the Nutcracker goodnight, little does she know that she has released her prince from his spell! Everyone gets into the act when the audience helps Clara's Dolls and the Toy Soldiers trick the Rat King!  At last the Nutcracker Prince defeats the Rat King freeing the house from his tyranny.
