The Watchmaker’s Song is an interactive re-imagination of the story of the The Nutcracker. Guests are offered cocktails and hors d'oeuvres as they are subsequently immersed in this holiday tale. Attendees will enter the 19th century shaded acre property of the Neill-Cochran House Museum, accompanied by a live jazz rendition of the original Tchaikovsky music.

This version of the story engages the audience in traditional components of the Nutcracker ballet while also incorporating elements of the original story written by E.T.A. Hoffman. Guests will enjoy a party and performances on the lawn first, and then they are invited inside the house to enjoy the magical components of the story, watching several live installations of cultural music and dance. The event culminates with a finale in the grand room before the audience exits the house, returning to the real world.
