“Royal Winnipeg Ballet's Nutcracker is picture perfect.” Janet Smith, The Georgia Straight
Featuring the National Arts Centre Orchestra
Frolicking polar bears, majestic Mounties, and a snowy pond hockey game! This Nutcracker is a jubilant, shimmering, Canadian holiday treasure that honours tradition while adding a playful, delightful homegrown touch. Join young Clara in her fairytale reverie through glittering winter landscapes where an enchanted nutcracker becomes a valiant soldier, the mischievous Mouse King wreaks havoc, and the dazzling Sugar Plum Fairy holds court in an exotic land. Set to Tchaikovsky’s beloved music, and with stunning sets and costumes, this Canadian Nutcracker fills the heart with joy and wonder!
Join us for the fabulous Sugar Plum Parties in the NAC Canal Lobby! Arrive one hour before show time to enjoy coloring for kids and learn a few dance stps from dancers of The School of Dance.
Performance is approximately 2 hours and 4 minutes including intermission
