Canada's Royal Winnipeg Ballet: Nutcracker - December 15th and 16th at TCU Place

A uniquely Canadian spin on the beloved holiday story makes our Nutcracker a nostalgic treasure that charms audiences of all ages, year after year. Young Clara’s dreams come to life in spectacular fashion as her nutcracker transforms into a gallant soldier to defend her from the army of the Mouse King, with majestic Mounties battling the mischievous Mice. The duo journey through a shimmering winter wonderland filled with dancing snowflakes and adorable polar bears to the court of the Sugar Plum Fairy. Tchaikovsky’s iconic score sets the stage for marvelous turn-of-the-century costumes and sets. Don’t miss the hijinks of fan-favourite Filbert the Bear during the family party!
