Tchaikovsky: The Nutcracker

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

This special 10:30 am performance is a chance for students to see a fully professional ballet come to life onstage.

This performance lasts the full two hours, with a 20-minute intermission.
