Events Description

Acclaimed as one of Canada’s finest renderings and celebrated as a delightfully traditional depiction, Edmund Stripe’s The Nutcracker celebrates its 10th anniversary this season. Opulent and historically authentic, this magical turn-of-the-century retelling of E.T.A. Hoffman’s famous tale is transposed to Imperialist Russia’s majestic era, when French fashion was in vogue and Tchaikovsky composed his timeless masterpiece.

The Nutcracker features a live orchestra and a cast of more than 120 dancers, with dazzling sets and costumes designed by Emmy-award winning designer Zack Brown, and choreography by our own Edmund Stripe.

Each year, Alberta Ballet offers new elements in The Nutcracker to keep it fresh. Whether it’s new cast members dancing lead roles, whimsical costumes, enchanting choreography, or engaging lobby activities for the kids, it always feels like the first time.

Alberta Ballet’s holiday tradition of The Nutcracker will shine brighter than ever in 2019!
