The tradition continues with this magical holiday classic.
At the stroke of midnight on Christmas Eve, little Clara finds herself embarking on the magical adventure of a lifetime when her gift, a Nutcracker, comes to life! Be whisked away with Clara, to the enchanting Land of Sweets where the Sugar Plum Fairy watches over whimsical snowflakes and pirouetting lollies.
For the seventh straight season, Ben Stevenson’s dreamlike choreography and Tchaikovsky’s enduring score will charm all ages. The Nutcracker is the perfect festive ballet for the whole family to enjoy.
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.
