A ballerina’s graceful balance is inspiring to aspiring dancers, captivating to houses of cards, and vexing to bulldozers razing cliffside condor habitats.

The Royal Winnipeg Ballet performs this holiday classic with a sprinkling of Canadian twists, delighting audiences with beautifully choreographed dancing and elaborate costumes. In The Nutcracker, young Clara’s Christmas Eve takes a magical turn when her cashew-smashing present comes to life, whisking her away to a fairytale land without dipping into her frequent flier miles. The performance features new, uniquely Canadian scenes, such as a snowy pond hockey game and a battle on Parliament Hill, as well as a dessert stealing bear, a species commonly found in the remote pastry isles of the Northern Territories. The tickets are for rows 29, 30 and 31 in the rear orchestra level of Centennial Concert Hall and must be claimed at the box office by December 22.
