Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky: The Nutcracker

Sponsored by

Symphony Nova Scotia’s The Nutcracker has been Halifax’s favourite holiday tradition for over 30 years. When a young 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 iconic, hauntingly beautiful music, this tale of magic and wonder is “a much-loved interpretation” (CBC) and a delightful holiday adventure for all ages.

"A dazzling combination of dance, music and amazing puppetry."

~The Chronicle Herald
