Shumka's Nutcracker is a new Holiday classic and a true
Edmonton Nutcracker. This luxurious and uniquely powerful
production features ballet, folk dance, and character dance
in a celebration of Tchaikovsky’s beloved score. Shumka's
Nutcracker blends the grace and lyrical nature of classical
movement with the strength of Ukrainian character dance,
leaving audiences exhilarated and entertained.
Given Tchaikovsky’s Ukrainian heritage, the production
incorporates Ukrainian Christmas traditions, folk and
character dance, a grand orchestral version of Shchedryk
(Carol of the Bells), and Ukrainian symbols woven into the
lavish sets and costumes.
Witness the story of the young Clara, her dream prince, the
meddling mice and the magic of the holiday season. A
delight for the senses!
