The classic holiday delight is a free public event taking place through November in malls across Edmonton!

 

Early holiday shoppers can look forward to a burst of festive cheer with Alberta Ballet’s Nutcracker story-times in Edmonton malls.

 

The Nutcracker is a celebrated ballet classic, but as a children’s story, it brims with enchanting heroism.  The mall story-times give audiences of all ages a chance to engage in the story with the unique elements of the Alberta Ballet version.

 

“Alberta Ballet is celebrating the 10th anniversary of our production of The Nutcracker and the characters that have been imagined by choreographer Edmund Stripe have become familiar holiday touchpoints for many Alberta families,” says Margaret Dalwood, Head of Alberta Ballet School – Edmonton Studios.

 

Alberta Ballet’s production includes a Snow Tsarina, Snow Wolves and of course the heroine herself – traditionally named Clara – is re-imagined in the libretto as Klara. Audiences will hear the story and meet the characters in a tactile and up close experience that will especially resonate for young children.

 

The mall story-times are hosted by dancers from Alberta Ballet School, the official training centre of Alberta Ballet, and characters who will be on site include the Snow Tsarina and a Snowflake Princess.

 

Alberta Ballet invites you to pause in the bustle of holiday shopping with an escape into this treasured story!
