More about this event
This timeless holiday tale will transport you to Imperialist Russia’s majestic era, when French fashion was in vogue and Tchaikovsky composed his timeless masterpiece. The Nutcracker features a live orchestra and a cast of more than 120 dancers, with dazzling sets and costumes designed by Emmy-award winning designer Zack Brown, and choreography by our own Edmund Stripe. Each year, Alberta Ballet offers new elements in The Nutcracker to keep it fresh. Whether it’s new cast members dancing lead roles, whimsical costumes, enchanting choreography, or engaging lobby activities for the kids, it always feels like the first time.
