The Nutcracker

Jubilee Auditorium Alberta Ballet

The Nutcracker was written in 1816 by Prussian author E.T.A. Hoffman.

Starting our afternoon by enjoying a refreshing Shirley Temple.

The Nutcracker is a story where a favourite Christmas toy, a Nutcracker, comes to life.

Story time, before the Ballet begins.

After defeating the evil Mouse King in battle, the Nutcracker whisks Clara away to the magical kingdom populated by dolls.

Lounging before the excitement begins.
Ballerinas….

In 1892, the Russian composer Pyatr Ilyich Tchaikovsky and choreographers Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanou turned Alexander Dumas’ adaptation of the story into the Ballet, The Nutcracker.

A very special day, witha very special little girl!
