Production showcases traditional Victorian England
Dreams of Sugar Plum Fairies will be dancing through the heads of Victorians this weekend, as the city prepares to be charmed by The Nutcracker.
In a partnership with Goh Ballet, Dance Victoria presents a display of over 150 people who have come together for the beloved production, including over 70 children from Victoria studios, the Vancouver team of Goh Ballet dancers, guests from Seattle’s Pacific Northwest Ballet and the Victoria Symphony’s accompanying musicians. Forty-five minutes prior to every performance, local storyteller Jim Leard will recount the tale of The Nutcracker in the lobby of the Royal Theatre, free to all ticket holders.
See The Nutcracker with the Victoria Symphony Fri., Nov. 30 and Sat., Dec. 1 at 7:30pm, as well as matinees Sat., Dec. 1 and Sun., Dec. 2 at 2pm at the Royal Theatre (805 Broughton). Tickets from $29 at the McPherson Box Office 250-386-6121, or via DanceVictoria.com. M
