More about this event

BRIGHTEN YOUR HOLIDAYS AND SHARE SOME FAMILY MAGIC THIS SEASON ON AN ADVENTURE YOU’LL CHERISH FOR A LIFETIME!

It’s Christmas Eve and a young girl named Klara has just received the most magical gift from her eccentric Uncle Drosselmeyer – a handsome nutcracker doll.

Little does she know as she falls asleep, weary from the family’s holiday celebrations, that her new toy is about to spark her imagination and take her on a dreamy adventure to the Land of Sweets! Join Klara and her nutcracker doll as they embark on a magical journey featuring epic battles with some pesky rats, a snow queen, a beautiful fairy, a dashing cavalier and of course, her nutcracker prince.

Celebrate the holiday season with this long-standing Alberta tradition created by our very own Edmund Stripe, set to Tchaikovsky’s timeless score. Featuring a cast of 120 performers made up of students from local dance schools including Alberta Ballet School, and a live orchestra from the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra and the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra, Alberta Ballet’s The Nutcracker is a crowd-pleaser that has audiences returning year after year.

Grand sets, stunning costumes and breathtaking choreography round out this timeless holiday production that is sure to delight even the youngest ballet fans.
