A heart-warming journey into a magical world, the Goh Ballet’s Nutcracker production is the perfect holiday treat for your family. Since the production began six years ago, critics have called it “an outstanding production” (the Vancouver Sun), “a gleaming ornament” (the Georgia Straight) and “the one to see” (the Province). The production quickly became a holiday tradition for Vancouver families and is the only Nutcracker in Vancouver that features live music and a cast composed of more than 200 dancers, including ballet superstar Paloma Herrera from American Ballet Theatre (New York) as the Sugar Plum Fairy. This ballet interpretation of E.T.A. Hoffman’s adored fairy tale, “The Nutcracker and the Mouse King” is set to the Vancouver Opera Orchestra’s rendition of Tchaikovsky’s masterpiece, The Nutcracker Suite.
