The Nutcracker: Beyond the Stage
What: This beloved Tchaikovsky classic from Vancouver's very own Goh Ballet has become a Christmastime tradition for many locals. But while in-person performances usually take place at downtown's Queen Elizabeth Theatre, this year they're taking an intriguingly different approach with an original, online-only show that's a clever reinvention of the well-known storyline. Set during the covid-addled days of 2020, struggling dancer Alex pursues a career in ballet despite being isolated from his family during lockdown. He's forced to re-examine everything that was once familiar––until Clara enters the frame. What will happen next and will he be able to fulfill his artistic dreams? Book ahead for this exclusive production via the link below and gather your family together for an unforgettable festive treat.
When: December 18, 2020 to January 2, 2021
Where: Online only
