Ballet Jorgen presents the traditional story of Klaras magical journey with her nutcracker prince with a uniquely Canadian twist. The Nutcracker: A Canadian Tradition is a visually stunning adventure favourite that brings Tchaikovskys well-loved score home for the holidays. December 17 at 7 pm. $25-$59.
Created by acclaimed choreographer Bengt Jorgen in collaboration with the McMichael Canadian Art Collection, the production is a remarkable fusion of ballet and classical music on a backdrop of iconic Canadian winter paintings, such as Franklin Carmichaels Church and Houses at Bisset (1931), Tom Thompsons Snow in the Woods (1916), and L.L. Fitzgeralds Trees and Wildflowers (1922).
