Holiday magic is made year after year by Ballet Jörgen’s traditional treasure The Nutcracker: a Canadian Tradition. Choreographed by Artistic Director Bengt Jörgen to Tchaikovsky’s classic is a favourite that brings magic to the holidays. 

20th Century landscapes make up the stunning 30-foot backdrops, featuring works from the Group of Seven. Audiences are taken on Klara’s familiar, magical dream journey as she arrives in Canada and experiences winter landscapes filled with snowflakes, lumberjacks, Mounties, and animals of the woods. 

The ballet’s second act is remembered for its celebration of varied dances, and our charming divertissements of raccoons, loons, dragonflies, and bears demonstrate Klara’s longing for the summer months as she travels excitedly through her dreams. The pas-de-deux in the final act is danced by Lord and Lady Birch as they usher Klara safely home at the end of the adventure.

It is a holiday tradition that has showcased the magic of the season for years. Rediscover the joy of dance with the show that audiences flock back to again and again, The Nutcracker: a Canadian Tradition.
