After the Sweets divertissements, the white-clad couple, called Clara the Princess (Gillian Murphy) and Nutcracker the Prince (David Hallberg), dance the majestic grand pas de deux. Their spectacular leaps and sparkly step variations are dotted with hesitations and awkward, childlike hops. Suddenly, Murphy runs to the side of the stage and falls to her knees, covering her eyes and weeping. Hallberg walks over and comforts her, then draws her back into the duet. I think she's crying because she's so happy. These may be supernatural, remote virtuosos, but they share the primal feelings we think we've outgrown.
