Sugar Plum Fairy dacing with her Cavalier
act 2

Now comes the time when the Sugar Plum Fairy, in a golden tutu, is escorted by her Cavalier to perform for her guests. They begin their classical pas de deux with soft adagio movements, and build to an exciting crescendo. Holding hands, Marie and the Prince are overwhelmed, hoping someday to dance as magically as that. Everyone joins in for a lively finale, a blaze of color and celebration.
