Sun Life Financial's Gift of The Nutcracker

 
 

The Nutcracker is a special tradition that brings families together, and what better way to give the gift of live ballet this holiday season than to provide tickets to individuals and families in need. The Sun Life Financial Nutcracker Dream program makes this possible, providing 2000 tickets in Calgary and Edmonton to Nutcracker performances.

 

The Nutcracker as choreographed by Alberta Ballet’s own Edmund Stripe tells the story of Klara and her Nutcracker Prince in a retelling of the greatest holiday story ever told. A tradition for many families, Alberta Ballet’s The Nutcracker has a place in the hearts of ballet patrons who return every year to revisit the story. Ask any guest to remember their first Nutcracker performance, and you’ll hear a story about magic, wonder, and beauty.

 

This cherished production when seen through the eyes of a child for the first time is treasured for years to come, and we’re honoured to share that experience with children and families though the Sun Life Financial Nutcracker Dream program.

 

Working with various organizations in Calgary and Edmonton, Sun Life Financial and Alberta Ballet help provide  opportunities for thousands of deserving individuals, children and families to see a production of The Nutcracker at no cost. The Sun Life Financial Nutcracker Dream program is there to help share the story of The Nutcracker with individuals and families during the holidays.

 

For memories that last a lifetime, the Sun Life Financial Nutcracker Dream program makes it possible for individuals and families to witness the gift of magic onstage this holiday season. May the spirit of the holiday season bring back fond memories of past productions, while new memories are made this year through the Sun Life Financial Nutcracker Dream program.

 
 

 

What we heard after the Boys & Girls Club of Calgary distributed tickets in 2016:

Because of The Nutcracker, I want to be a ballerina when I grow up.
