Sadly, because of the current health order restricting capacity, Dance Victoria is withdrawing its presentation of Nutcracker this season. Stay tuned for a special announcement in the coming weeks!

Shumka’s Nutcracker blends the grace and lyricism of classical movement with the strength and power of Ukrainian folk and character dance. This classic tale of young Clara and her dream Prince incorporates Ukrainian traditions and symbols, grand orchestral versions of Tchaikovsky’s legendary score, and lavish sets and costumes designed by National Opera of Ukraine’s Maria Levitska. Exuberant entertainment!
