This enduring holiday classic is sure to transport you to Imperialist Russia’s majestic era, when French fashion was in vogue and Tchaikovsky composed his timeless masterpiece.

Join Alberta Ballet and jump-start the season with new elements and special guests in walk-on roles.

The production is set to Tchaikovsky’s immortal score, brought to life in spectacular fashion by the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra and a cast of more than 120 dancers including up-and-coming talent from the Alberta Ballet School.

Complete with dazzling sets and costumes designed by Emmy-award winning designer Zack Brown alongside choreography by Edmund Stripe, you won’t want to miss this unforgettable experience for young and old alike.

The Nutcracker runs December 13 to 24, 2019 at the Southern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium (1415 14th Ave. NW).
