The Magic Toyshop, a holiday-themed, two-act ballet full of comedy and classical ballet, is a touching love story. Set in an enchanted toy shop in mid-nineteenth century France, the ballet tells a tale of a toymaker who created life-sized "mechanical" dolls. During the day, he displays his dolls for customers and entices the families from America and Russia to buy his favorite Can-Can couple. That night magic happens as the other dolls plot to release the couple from their holiday wrappings.
