When good children should be tucked up in bed, little Clara is still wide awake. The clock chimes midnight — and a wondrous fantasy world unfolds!
Led by the valiant Nutcracker, brave toy soldiers defend Clara against giant mice. Transformed into a Prince, the Nutcracker leads Clara on a magical journey to the Kingdom of Sweets to meet the Sugar Plum Fairy. With the magnificent music of Tchaikovsky and lavish sets and costumes, Ben Stevenson’s The Nutcracker will delight the whole family.
After selected performances at QPAC, a panel of creative artists and dancers discusses aspects of the ballet you’ve just seen.
Informative, keepsake programs are distributed free-of-charge at all performances. You can also view the program online before the performance.
