Alberta Ballet’s holiday classic, The Nutcracker, transports the entire family back to 19th century Russia through a spectacular multimillion dollar production. From Tchaikovky’s treasured score, glittering sets, lavish costumes and enchanting dance, the excitement of this classic tale creates its own sense of wonder and excitement.
A wonderland of activities makes the experience even more magical with the Sugar Plum Parties. Boys and girls of all ages can play dress up with costumes from the ballet at Klara’s Closet, participate in arts and crafts, and enjoy the tale again with their family at the Storybook Corner.
