Canada’s Ballet Jörgen - Holiday Classic The Nutcracker: a Canadian Tradition is Back!

Ballet Jörgen’s Yuletide treasure The Nutcracker: a Canadian Tradition – created by acclaimed choreographer and artistic director Bengt Jörgen to Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s well-loved score – returns to Centrepointe Theatre December 14 and 15, and to Shenkman Arts Centre December 16 and 17 for a six-performance run.

Born from a collaboration with Kleinburg’s world-renowned McMichael Canadian Art Collection, and with well over 100 rich costumes designed by Sue LePage, The Nutcracker: a Canadian Tradition brings out the magic of Canada. Landscapes by 20th-century Canadian artists make up the stun­ning 30-foot backdrops, including Franklin Carmichael’s Church and Houses at Bisset (1931), Tom Thompson’s Snow in the Woods (1916), and L.L. Fitzgerald’s Trees and Wildflowers (1922). This is a beautiful, uniquely Canadian work, where the audience is taken on Klara’s familiar, magical dream journey as she arrives in Canada and experiences winter landscapes filled with snowflakes, lumberjacks, Mounties and creatures of the woods.

Ballet Jörgen’s Nutcracker is a na­tional treasure that will warm the hearts of young and old this magical time of the year.  Rediscover the joy of dance with the show that audiences flock back to again and again – The Nutcracker: a Canadian Tradition.

Tickets are now available online at http://www.centrepointetheatre.com/ and at http://shenkmanarts.ca/
