Acclaimed as one of Canada’s finest renderings and celebrated as a delightfully traditional depiction, Edmund Stripe’s The Nutcracker celebrates its 10th anniversary this season.
Opulent and historically authentic, this magical turn- of-the-century retelling of E.T.A. Hoffman’s famous tale is transposed to Imperialist Russia’s majestic era, when French fashion was in vogue and Tchaikovsky composed his timeless masterpiece.
The Nutcracker features a cast of more than 120 performers. With equally sumptuous sets and costumes designed by Emmy Award winner Zack Brown, Alberta Ballet’s incomparable The Nutcracker offers your entire family a festive and glittering evening.
Alberta Ballet will commemorate this production's 10th anniversary with a special edition that includes guest cameos and new choreographic elements.
Alberta Ballet's holiday tradition of The Nutcracker will shine brighter than ever in 2018!
