“Ballet Jörgen combines respect for tradition with a canny eye for what will make its productions distinct.”
– Michael Crabb, The Toronto Star
Ballet Jörgen’s Nutcracker is a national treasure that will warm the hearts of young and old alike. Created by acclaimed choreographer and Artistic Director Bengt Jörgen to Tchaikovsky’s well-loved score. This is a beautiful Canadian work, and 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 creatures of the woods. Born from a collaboration with Kleinburg’s world renowned McMichael Canadian Art Collection, and with well over 100 costumes in richly coloured fabrics, The Nutcracker: A Canadian Tradition brings out the magic of Canada in this stunning production.
