Canada’s Ballet Jörgen returns to Kitchener-Waterloo this December with Bengt Jörgen’s uniquely Canadian holiday classic The Nutcracker: A Canadian Tradition.

The Nutcracker: A Canadian Tradition will play at Centre in the Square for one day only on Thursday, December 28, 2023, for two great performances: 2PM & 7PM.

This celebration of the wonder of the season is based on the popular traditional story The Nutcracker and the King of mice by E.T.A. Hoffman, enjoyed by audiences for years. The ballet’s second act is remembered for its celebration of varied dances, and our charming divertissements of raccoons, loons, dragonflies, and bears demonstrate Klara’s longing for the summer months as she travels excitedly through her dreams. The iconic, show-stopping pas-de-deux in the final act is lovingly danced by Lord and Lady Birch as they usher Klara safely home at the end of the adventure.

Canada’s Ballet Jörgen’s Nutcracker is destined to become a national treasure that will warm the hearts of young and old alike. It is a holiday tradition that has showcased the magic of the season for years.

Rediscover the joy of dance with the show that audiences flock back to again and again.
