The Royal Winnipeg Ballet is treating its audiences to Christmas in July during this season’s Ballet in the Park.

The Nutcracker, a tradition for the RWB, will be sampled during performances July 27-29 at Assiniboine Park.

The free family-friendly event attracts more than 20,000 people annually to the Lyric Theatre stage.

The RWB is tying in the Nutracker performances as part of a promotion to purchase adult tickets at a discounted price for shows December 22, 23, 24, 26 and 31. The discount code NUTINJULY can be used until July 31 at the RWB box office.

Ballet in the Park performances will run at 7:30 p.m. nightly.
