The Nutcracker

The Nutcracker, performed by the National Ballet of Canada, is a timeless story that has become a family tradition during the Christmas season here in Toronto. 


Follow the quarreling siblings, Misha and Marie, as they move not just through marvelous and extraordinary experiences but through surprising phases of understanding as they prepare to leave childhood behind and enter the very different world of adolescence.

The costumes and sets evoke an enchanted, rustic world of long-gone Imperial Russia, a place where folk rituals and the cycles of nature make way for the magical, ice-coated world of the Snow Queen and the spectacular beauty of the golden palace of the Sugar Plum Fairy.

The production is underscored by Tchaikovsky’s music. A family favourite and a MUST SEE!
