A young girl is transported into a magical world of gingerbread soldiers and an army of mice.
At the beginning of the ballet telling the story of the Four Realms, the conductor mounts the podium and conducts an orchestra appearing in silhouette. This is a reference to the Disney classic 'Fantasia,' which included a segment based on "The Nutcracker Suite."

Every decorated conifer has the same silhouette, with an identifiable bare patch on the left side of the trees, suggesting that the image was simply recycled once rendered. Real trees look different from each other.
During the credits, Misty Copeland dances a traditional ballet to the "Miniature Overture" from "The Nutcracker". The outlines of male dancers performing a more hip-hop dance to the same music follow.
