The Goh Ballet is presenting the world premiere of The Nutcracker December 17th to 20th, 2009 at the Centre for Performing Arts in Vancouver.
Featuring Principal Dancers from The National Ballet of Canada and the choreography of Anna-Marie Holmes, it’s great to see another Christmas classic coming to a Vancouver stage this season. The performance also includes students from across the Lower Mainland, the Vancouver Metropolitan Orchestra, a real magician, and all new sets and costumes. There will be a show each evening along with two matinee shows on the 19th and 20th.
Tickets range from $28 to $75 and are available online from Ticketmaster. I have also been given tickets for a contest on my site so that a lucky reader and their guest can experience this magical evening.
To enter to win tickets to The Nutcracker (to see Clara, Drosselmeyer, the Mouse King, and the Sugar Plum Fairy) please leave a comment below noting one of your most special Christmas memories. Hopefully the winner of the tickets will be able to make some great new memories that include a night out with a loved one and The Nutcracker.
Update: Thank you to everyone for sharing such amazing Christmas memories. I drew a winner at random this afternoon and it was Kelsey. Congratulations!
The winner will receive two tickets for the performance Thursday, December 17 at 7:30pm and will be chosen at random December 15th. If they are unable to use the tickets, I will draw another winner within 24 hours.
