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.
