Featuring principal dancers of the Kyiv Ballet (National Ballet of Ukraine) and the famed Virsky National Dance Ensemble. Shumka’s Nutcracker blends the grace and lyricism of classical ballet with the strength and power of Ukrainian folk dance. This classic tale of young Clara and her dream Prince incorporates Ukrainian traditions and symbols, and costumes designed by National Opera of Ukraine’s Maria Levitska. The legendary score is performed live by the Victoria Symphony.
“A perfect first Nutcracker for many generations… A powerful and beautiful thing to behold.” EDMONTON JOURNAL
