Danced to Tchaikovsky’s glorious music, the story follows the wondrous adventures of Clara, her Nutcracker Prince and the Sugar Plum Fairy. The turn-of-the century fantasy is set in a stately mansion where young Clara’s Christmas dream world comes to life, featuring toy soldiers, dancing mice and a mischievous bear who steals the Christmas pudding.
This heart-warming ballet is full of surprises, including traditional Canadian scenes such as a snowy pond hockey game and a battle on Parliament Hill. Sumptuous costumes and an imaginative set design make this classic sparkle, delighting audiences of all ages with its beauty and splendour.
