It wouldn't be the holidays without The Nutcracker. Alberta Ballet's production with choreography by Edmund Stripe and sets and costumes
designed by Emmy Award-winning designer Zack Brown, "…sparkles like a Fabergé egg..," says The Vancouver Sun.
Whether you're beginning a new holiday tradition, or revisiting
an old favourite, you'll be enthralled by Clara's escapades with her Nutcracker Prince. When Clara's Christmas gift comes to life and defeats the evil Mouse King, she's whisked away to a
magical kingdom, where the Sugar Plum Fairy reigns.
Set in turn-of-the-century Imperial Russia, an era noted for its opulent grandeur, this extravagant production displays more
than a million dollars in stunning sets and costumes; including more than 100 children from local
dance schools, mice dressed as Cossack soldiers, and snowflakes dressed as Russian
princesses. This sparkling spectacle offers a perfect complement to Tchaikovsky's glorious musical score played live by the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra. Treat your family to the joy,
excitement, and unforgettable adventure of The Nutcracker this festive season!
