The holidays are here and the whole family has come together for Christmas Eve. As the children open their gifts, the mysterious Doctor Drosselmeyer gives his niece Clara a beautiful nutcracker. So begins a great adventure for Clara, who we are delighted to follow to the Land of Snow and the Kingdom of Sweets.

Created in 1964 by Québec choreographer Fernand Nault, this timeless classic has won the hearts of generations of audiences with its skillful blend of fantasy, magic and humour. With dazzling sets, sumptuous costumes and a dreamlike vision of childhood, this ballet features some 100 dancers. A fabulous adventure for the young and the not-so-young!
