The Royal Winnipeg Ballet is preparing to present the beloved holiday classic “The Nutcracker” from December 22-29.
After a free performance last weekend, the RWB will bring the uniquely Canadian scenes, like a snow pond hockey game and a battle on Parliament Hill, to the Centennial Concert Hall.
The role of adult Clara will be performed by RWB soloists Amanda Green and Jo-Ann Sundermeier and second soloist Maureya Lebowitz. Soloists Dmitri Dovgoselets and Yosuke Mino and guest artist Carlos Quenedit will perform the role of The Nutcracker Prince. All performances will be accompanied by the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra, conducted by RWB Music Director Tadeusz Biernacki.
The annual play has been known to sell out in the past, and seats are going fast. Tickets start at $30 for adults and $20 for children, with the exception of seats in Section A. Tickets are available through Ticketmaster or at the RWB office by calling (204) 956-2792.
