Be Part of the Magic

Celebrate the holidays with Alberta Ballet's beloved production of The Nutcracker, where Klara and her Nutcracker go on a magical journey, battle the Rat Tsar's dark magic, and dance with the courtiers in the palace of the Sugar Plum Fairy. With 120 performers, stunning costumes, and a live orchestra, the Jubilee stage becomes an enchanting fantasy world. Don't miss this dazzling performance with music by the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra and Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra.

The magic begins the moment you step through the Jubilee doors. Plan to arrive early to take part in Nutcracker-themed activities throughout the lobby!
