Great Russian Nutcracker

(Moscow Ballet)

What: Moscow's Ballet's sumptuous traditional production is a family-friendly feast for anyone looking to kick off their Christmas celebrations. Rather than visiting the city and appearing on stage in Vancouver this time around, the 2020 production is available only as a streaming option––which means you can don your own tutu and enjoy the show at home. Expect expert dancers, lavish sets and shimmering costumes––as well as appearances from puppets, unicorns, a giant Dove of Peace and even a 60ft-high Christmas tree that grows throughout the show. This online presentation includes behind-the-scenes footage and more.

When: December 19 (5pm), 2020

Where: Online only. Visit the official website for details and tickets


Cost: Tickets $24.99-$69.99
