For this year’s performances of The Nutcracker at Centre in the Square, Canada’s Ballet Jörgen is reunited with the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony that will provide live accompaniment for this seasonal classic. In addition, along with The Nutcracker’s nineteen BJC professional dancers, ten young dance students from the Kitchener-Waterloo area will perform in the Ballet. The students were selected by audition through Canada’s Ballet Jörgen’s Nutcracker Youth Education Program.
Born from a collaboration with Kleinburg’s world-renowned McMichael Canadian Art Collection, and with well over 100 costumes in richly coloured fabrics, The Nutcracker, a Canadian Tradition brings out the magic of Canada. 20th Century landscapes make up the stunning 30-foot backdrops, including Franklin Carmichael’s Church and Houses at Bisset (1931), Tom Thomson’s Snow in the Woods (1916) and L.L. FitzGerald’s Trees and Wildflowers (1922). This is a beautiful Canadian work, and audiences are taken on Klara’s familiar, magical dream-journey as she arrives in Canada and experiences winter landscapes filled with snowflakes, lumberjacks, Mounties and creatures of the woods.
Canada’s Ballet Jörgen builds communities across Canada through the shared experience of professional ballet and reaches every province with over 600 events annually. Inspiring and connecting with Canadians for 27 years, Canada’s Ballet Jörgen makes ballet and Canadian choreography a meaningful part of Canadians’ lives through performance, education, and community engagement.
