For over 50 years, the ballet inspired by the Hoffman tale has been delighting the hearts of children and grownups alike when The Nutcracker is presented in Montreal. Rediscover the grand, rich sets by Peter Horne, the stunning costumes by François Barbeau and the magical lighting by Nicolas Cernovitch, which turn these festivities conceived by Fernand Nault into a true extravaganza. L'Orchestre symphonique de Québec performs the wonderful Tchaikovsky airs of this timeless classic.

Follow in the footsteps of Clara, Fritz and a flock of children and visit the Land of Snow, explore the Kingdom of Sweets and meet the King of Sweets, the Sugar Plum Fairy and a wide assortment of other colourful characters. With comical scenes, sparkling pas de deux, exhilarating music and elegant festivities, this fantasy world comes but once a year. Enjoy a taste of Christmas magic that never fails to delight!
