One of British Columbia’s most iconic traditions graces the stage once again this holiday season as Goh Ballet’s The Nutcracker returns to The Centre in Vancouver for a limited run from Dec. 15 to 20. Tickets are currently available through Ticketmaster.
The show is brought to life under the leadership of Executive Producer Chan Hon Goh, former Prima Ballerina with the National Ballet of Canada, and the artistic staging of Emmy-award winning choreographer Anna-Marie Holmes.
“In eight short years, Goh Ballet’s The Nutcracker has quickly become a not-to be missed holiday tradition for thousands of families from across the Lower Mainland,” said Hon Goh.
“Come join our cast of hundreds of local and international performers as we take you away on a magical journey with Clara and her beloved Nutcracker.”
The Nutcracker will feature performances by internationally renowned principal dancers from the prestigious National Ballet of Canada, Jurgita Dronina and Guillaume Côté, performing together as the Sugar Plum Fairy and the Cavalier Prince.
Members of the Vancouver Opera Orchestra will provide live musical accompaniment of Tchaikovsky’s world-renowned Nutcracker Suite.
The show runs nightly from Dec. 15 to 20, with matinee performances as well on weekends.
The Centre in Vancouver for Performing Arts, 777 Homer St. Vancouver.
