The Nutcracker Ballet returns to Montreal for the holiday season

Nov 7 2016, 1:38 am

In addition to the upcoming Nutcracker Market, you can also get your Nutcracker fill courtesy of the Les Grands Ballets.

The full-length rendition of The Nutcracker is coming to Place des Arts from December 10 until December 30th. Performances will take place at 2pm and 7:30pm.

Telling the story of Clara, who receives a beautiful nutcracker for Christmas, the young girl is then swept into a fairytale world in which the nutcracker becomes a prince and mice and rats battle an army of toy soldiers.

A timeless tale perfect for all ages, you are sure to be mesmerized by Tchaikovsky’s breathtaking score.

This year’s show is two hours in length, and contains over 150 cast members. In addition, the talented Fernand Nault will serve as the performance’s choreographer.
