The delightful story of young Clara, her dream prince, brave soldiers, and the meddling mice, is reimagined and proudly presented as a Ukrainian version of Tchaikovsky’s famous work in Shumka’s Nutcracker. This unique blend of the grace and lyricism of classical ballet with the strength and power of Ukrainian dance brings a special sense of energy and excitement to this Christmas classic.

“A perfect first Nutcracker for many generations…a powerful and beautiful thing to behold.”
