Ballet Jörgen Canada is pleased to present its holiday production of The Nutcracker: A Canadian Tradition. Created by choreographer and Artistic Director Bengt Jörgen to Tchaikovsky’s famous score, this is a classic ballet with a Canadian twist. Born from a collaboration with Kleinburg’s McMichael Canadian Art Collection, The Nutcracker: A Candian Tradition features over 100 costumes in richly coloured fabrics, as well as 20th Century landscapes that make up the 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). Audiences are taken on Klara’s journey as she arrives in Canada and experiences winter landscapes filled with snowflakes, lumberjacks, Mounties, and creatures of the woods. Tickets can be found here.
