Early Bird tickets are now on sale for a special presentation of Canada’s Royal Winnipeg Ballet’s Nutcracker accompanied by the Victoria Symphony at the Royal Theatre, presented by Dance Victoria, from December 2 through December 4, 2022.

Early bird pricing for adults offers a savings of up to 20% off regular priced Nutcracker tickets and is available from August 15 to September 14, 2022, 11:59 pm through the Royal and McPherson Theatres Box Office.

As much a part of the holiday season as the region’s Lighted Truck Convoy and Island Farm’s Light Parade, Nutcracker has toured to the Royal Theatre for years showcasing the talents of Canada’s top prima ballerinas and dancers. Royal Winnipeg Ballet’s much-loved Canadian-themed production opens with a hockey game on a frozen pond, features RCMP officers in a battle on Parliament Hill with the evil Mouse King, and gives nods to the Hudson Bay Company. To add to the fun, the mischievous Filbert the Bear steals the Christmas pudding. Furry mice and Hudson the Polar Bear with his 12 cubs will warm your heart. As the clock strikes midnight, Clara will fall in love with her dashing Nutcracker prince and find herself on a storybook journey that will take her into the heart of a timeless fairy tale.

This Royal Winnipeg Ballet production continues to be Dance Victoria’s largest-scale presentation. In addition to RWB’s 27 company dancers, Nutcracker engages 45 members of the Victoria Symphony; 75 children from local dance schools in the Nutcracker Ensemble; and 35 backstage crew for each performance.
