The Nutcracker

James Kudelka's ravishing and gloriously re-imagined version of the evergreen Christmas spectacular was created for The National Ballet of Canada in 1995 and it remains an unparalleled holiday entertainment for both children and adults. Replete with Kudelka's signature dynamic and exuberant choreography and gliding with wonderful ease from whimsical and often boisterous comedy to breathtaking spectacle and touching emotion, the ballet is a feast for both the senses and the imagination.

In Kudelka's adaptation, E.T.A. Hoffmann's original tale is re-situated in rural 19th-century Russia, a world in which nature and the rituals of farm life are harmoniously and organically entwined. The story centres on a brother and sister, Misha and Marie, and their Christmas Eve dream journey which carries them from their family home through a world of wonders to the glittering winter realm of the Snow Queen and finally to the splendour of the palace of the Sugar Plum Fairy.

Santo Loquasto's beautifully evocative sets and costumes combine perfectly with the enchantment of Tchaikovsky's sumptuous score to complete a genuinely magical Christmas experience for ballet lovers of all ages.
