The Nutcracker Ballet

The Royal Conservatory

Thursdays, December 7 & 14


Eggnog, mistletoe, turkey with cranberry sauce, quality time with family and friends, favourite carols, Handel's Messiah, these are just some of the wonders of the holiday season in Toronto. To that list must be added The Nutcracker ballet by Tchaikovsky, annually presented during the holidays by the National Ballet of Canada, and now a very popular event for Toronto children, parents, grandparents and great-grandparents. This series, with Rick Phillips and Toronto Star dance critic Michael Crabb, will uncover the history, music, choreography, wonders and lasting appeal of one of the most-loved ballets in the repertoire.
