‘Twas the night before Nutcracker, and all through the house
Magic was stirring, with a tale of a mouse…

In partnership with Halifax Dance and Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia, Symphony Nova Scotia presents an online “Nutcracker in a Nutshell”! Join Clara and her friends as they celebrate Christmas Eve with their favourite tale – and fall into a delightful storybook adventure of magic, fantasy, and friendship. Featuring festive puppets, a condensed cast of characters, and an intimate ensemble of live musicians playing beautifully rescored excerpts of Tchaikovsky’s beloved music, this tale of holiday wonder is a chance to experience The Nutcracker for the first time, all over again.

Please note: This online performance is about 30 minutes long, with no intermission.
