THE NUTCRACKER BALLET – BALLET JORGEN

Showplace Presents:

Holiday magic is made year after year by Ballet Jorgen’s The Nutcracker:a Canadian Tradition. Created by acclaimed choreographer and Artistic Director Bengt Jorgen to Tchaikovsky’s well-loved score, the work is based on the popular traditional story The Nutcracker and the King of mice by E.T.A. Hoffman. Born from a collaboration with the world-renowned McMichael Canadian Art Collection, this is a beautiful Canadian work with 20th Century landscapes- including Franklin Carmichael and Tom Thompson- making up the stunning 30-foot backdrops.
