The Nutcracker Fund for Children

An initiative by Les Grands Ballets

Les Grands Ballets is committed to giving back to the community. For 22 years, The Nutcracker Fund has, with your generous help, been sharing the magic of this timeless ballet with less fortunate children.

The Nutcracker Fund offers a complete immersion in the show’s universe by allowing:

  • A Nutcracker performance free of charge for 2,800 children who are sick, in difficulty or from a sensitive background
  • Educational workshops offered to 1,500 among them
  • Support to the annual refurbishing of The Nutcracker's costumes and sets, now in its 56th year!
