2016Nutcracker

Presented by Dance Fredericton Danse and featuring guest artists Alanna McAdie and Yosuke Mino, soloists with Canada’s Royal Winnipeg Ballet, and Louis-Philippe Dionne former soloist with the Atlantic Ballet Theatre of Canada, The Nutcracker is a full-length ballet which showcases original choreography created for Dance Fredericton, elaborate costuming and sets, and the classical score by Pyotr Tchaikovsky.

This fairy tale ballet opens with the festive Victorian party scene on Christmas Eve in the Stahlbaum home and later follows Clara and the Nutcracker Prince on their journey to the Land of the Sweets.  In the Magical Kingdom they are feted with delightful dances from around the world, including the stunningly beautiful pas de deux of the Sugar Plum Fairy and her Cavalier.  This timeless classic will delight audiences of all ages.
