Canada’s Royal Winnipeg Ballet captures the imagination with this uniquely Canadian retelling of the beloved holiday classic, Nutcracker. 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.
