The Hawaiian Nutcracker performed at UH Hilo

The Hawaiian Nutcracker is set in the 1800s at Hale Ali‘i, the royal palace named by Kamehameha III, with lead characters of a young David Kalākaua and Lydia Kamaka‘eha, both future monarchs of Hawai‘i. Dozens of dancers from UH Hilo, Hawai‘i Community College, and the Hawai‘i Island community will perform this adaptation of the holiday classic.
