More about this event

Shumka's Nutcracker is a new Holiday classic and a true Edmonton Nutcracker. This luxurious and uniquely powerful production features ballet, folk dance, and character dance in a celebration of Tchaikovsky’s beloved score. Shumka's Nutcracker blends the grace and lyrical nature of classical movement with the strength of Ukrainian character dance, leaving audiences exhilarated and entertained.
Given Tchaikovsky’s Ukrainian heritage, the production incorporates Ukrainian Christmas traditions, folk and character dance, a grand orchestral version of Shchedryk (Carol of the Bells), and Ukrainian symbols woven into the lavish sets and costumes.
