Among the many holiday shows in Toronto this season, one stands out as a true Christmas classic: The Nutcracker.
For those who haven’t heard of it before, The Nutcracker premiered back in 1892 in St. Petersburg, Russia. Since then, it has been remade into films, television shows, theatre productions, and ballet — and it has become synonymous with Christmas celebrations worldwide.
This year, Torontonians can see an unforgettable production of The Nutcracker featuring ballerina powerhouses Anastasia Stashkevich and Vyacheslav Lopatin, principal dancers of the world-renowned Bolshoi Ballet in Moscow.
Follow along on the dream journey of Misha and Marie, the brother and sister at the centre of the narrative, who make their way through a dreamscape of creatures, places and events before they finally arrive at the magical palace of the Sugar Plum Fairy. With Tchaikovsky’s unforgettable score, The Nutcracker is bound to add more cheer to your Christmas.
If your family is looking to start a new holiday tradition, we highly recommend enjoying a performance of this holiday classic.
