Make The Nutcracker part of your family’s holiday celebration this December. Ballet Victoria will whisk you away to a fantasyland where nothing exists except you, the music and the wonder-filled story.
The story starts with a traditional family Christmas Eve party where a gift from an uncle unleashes a whirlwind of unexpected vignettes and surprises. Paul Destrooper, Ballet Victoria’s Artistic Director, is known for his dramatic, inspiring, and physical style. Ballet Victoria embodies the ability to combine the stunning classical lines of pointe work with the grounded side of neoclassical ballet and modern contemporary dance forms.
The Nutcracker delivers everything you expect from a Ballet Victoria performance: beautifully executed dance, brilliant costumes, complex choreography and a bit of humour. “We’ve changed things up and had a bit of fun bringing the well-loved tale of The Nutcracker into this century,” explains Destrooper, “We poke a bit of fun […] with humorous surprises that will excite the whole family!”
