The Nutcracker – By Ballet Victoria

Dec. 14 @ 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Revelstoke Performing Arts Centre

$30

Back again by popular demand. Let yourself be transported by Ballet Victoria and the young dancers of Revelstoke as they take you to a fantasyland of music, wonder, movement and joy. Ballet Victoria expertly brings The Nutcracker into the 21st century; instead of having Clara awake from a bad dream about mice and battles, Clara opens a gift that releases myriad magical characters. The Nutcracker delivers beautifully executed dance, brilliant costumes, complex choreography, and a slice of humour. Enjoy this sell-out Christmas delight with the whole family.

This performance will feature Ballet Victoria’s professional ballet dancers alongside local Revelstoke dancers.
