For over 50 years, the ballet inspired by the Hoffman tale has been delighting the hearts of children and grownups alike when The Nutcracker is presented in Montreal. Rediscover the grand, rich sets by Peter Horne, the stunning costumes by François Barbeau and the magical lighting by Nicolas Cernovitch, which turn these festivities conceived by Fernand Nault into a true extravaganza. Les Grands Ballets Orchestra performs the wonderful Tchaikovsky airs of this timeless classic.
Follow the young Clara and her Nutcracker Prince to the Land of Snow as she discovers the wonderful world of the King of Sweets and Cotton-Candy Angels, along with the delicious flavors of tea, coffee and chocolate.
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!"
