Tchaikovsky: The Nutcracker


Symphony Nova Scotia’s The Nutcracker is Halifax’s favourite holiday tradition! When a little girl’s toy comes to life, she’s whisked away to an enchanted world where she meets magical creatures, colourful new friends, and the ferocious Mouse Queen. Complete with larger-than-life puppets, spirited dancing, and Tchaikovsky’s hauntingly beautiful music, this tale of magic and wonder is a seasonal adventure for all ages.

Hear from Maestro Bernhard Gueller about conducting The Nutcracker!

"The Nutcracker is a visual narrative of luscious delights – beautiful costumes, impressive set design and at its core, a story of love and courage."

The Coast, 2014
