Alberta Ballet’s sumptuous new production casts a bewitching spell with Edmund Stripe’s charming original choreography for Klara, The Nutcracker Prince, and the Sugar Plum Fairy. Extravagant bejeweled sets and one-of-a-kind costumes, created by Emmy Award winner Zack Brown, give the ballet the look of a gorgeously illustrated children’s book.
