Ballet BC is proud to present Alberta Ballet in their exquisite production of the holiday classic The Nutcracker, with live music from the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra.
Where: Queen Elizabeth Theatre (649 Cambie St, Vancouver)
When: December 29 & 30 at 7:30pm, December 30 & 31 at 2:00pm
Tickets: Purchase through Ticketmaster at 1-855-985-2787 (855-985-ARTS) or online for $35 to $110 (including GST and service charges). Family 4-packs are available from $250-$335.
Choreographed by Edmund Stripe, with sets and costumes designed by Emmy Award-winning designer Zack Brown, The Nutcracker is set in turn of the 20th century Imperial Russia, an era of opulent grandeur. This production “…sparkles like a Fabergé egg…” says the Vancouver Sun and extravagantly displays more than a million dollars in stunning sets and costumes. With scores of children, mice in the battle scene dressed as Cossack soldiers, and snowflakes dressed as Russian princesses, this “sparking and spectacular achievement” (The Calgary Herald) offers a perfect complement to Tchaikovsky’s glorious musical score played live by the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra.
