The National Ballet of Canada presents

The Nutcracker

This holiday season, Canadians across the country will be able to enjoy the magic of The Nutcracker. In partnership with Cineplex, a special presentation of the beloved classic, previously captured live at the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts in Toronto, is now available to stream from the comfort and safety of your home on the Cineplex Store.

“The Nutcracker is a cherished holiday tradition for many in our community, particularly families and children. During this challenging year when we are unable to perform live, I am delighted that through this partnership with Cineplex, the National Ballet can share this beautiful production with Canadians across the country.” – Karen Kain

Choregraphed by James Kudelka with set and costume designs by Santo Loquasto and lighting by Jennifer Tipton, this performance of The Nutcracker features Principal Dancers Sonia Rodriguez and Piotr Stanczyk as The Sugar Plum Fairy and Peter/The Nutcracker and was captured live at the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts in 2008.

Hailed “the best Nutcracker on the planet” by The Globe and Mail, The National Ballet of Canada’s acclaimed production features 233 performers – 50 dancers, 98 children from Canada’s National Ballet School and high schools all over Toronto, 65 musicians and 20 young singers from VIVA! Youth Singers of Toronto who join The National Ballet of Canada Orchestra for the famous snow season.
