For a 55th year, Les Grands Ballets' magical The Nutcracker returns to warm the hearts of young and old. This splendid ballet, a choreographic legacy of the late Fernand Nault based on Hoffman’s original tale, sumptuously embodies the spirit of Christmas with its graceful entertainment, magical scenery and stunning costumes, to Tchaikovsky’s irresistible music.
Treat yourself and your loved ones to one of the finest gifts of the holiday sea¬son: an enchanting journey to the Land of Snow and the Kingdom of Sweets! Along with Clara and her Nutcracker Prince, a gallery of colourful characters will dazzle you: the Snow Queen, the Sugar Plum Fairy, the King of Rats, Dew Drop Fairies, reindeers, Matryoshka dolls and so many more!
Our orchestra features up to 70 musicians and superior soloists, and has been playing a major role in the success of Les Grands Ballets for more than 30 years.
"Christmas and the holiday season are the time, once again, for the return of young Clara in The Nutcracker. The magic of this winter’s tale is sure to delight young and old, and this season marks its 55th year in Montreal!"
