Featuring 312 dancers in roles from ballerinas to gymnasts, magicians, and more, The Nutcracker has a few new tricks up its sleeve. The city’s only professional Nutcracker production casts performers of all ages, from mice aged 6 to ballroom dancers aged 73.

Visiting principal dancers from renowned companies worldwide – including Stephanie Chen Gundorph and Sebastian Pico Haynes of the Royal Danish Ballet, dancers from the National Ballet of China, and Cecilia Iliesiu and Dammiel Cruz-Garrido of the Pacific Northwest Ballet – will be joined by dancers from 11 countries (including the UK, Australia, Brazil, Japan and Georgia). It’s a milestone for Vancouver’s iconic Nutcracker production, and for the international ballet community as a whole.

Taking the Queen Elizabeth stage alongside the world’s prima ballerinas are seasoned dancers from overseas and local ballet-hopefuls. Many, like this year’s 18-year-old Nutcracker Prince Vitor Moreira from Brazil. Goh Ballet’s Nutcracker breaks down those barriers – allowing young dancers to share the stage and enable mentorship opportunities with international stars.
