The Nutcracker: A Canadian Tradition

This is a beautiful Canadian ballet where audiences are taken on Klara’s “magical dream-journey as she arrives in Canada and experiences winter landscapes filled with snowflakes, lumberjacks, Mounties and creatures of the woods”.

A special thank you to Ballet Jörgen for their generous donation!
