  • Presented for the first time in 2013, and warmly welcomed by audiences and critics alike, this new version of The Nutcracker is signed by Ballet Ouest's Artistic Director, Claude Caron.

    When it comes to holiday traditions, nothing compares to this magical journey to the Land of Snow and the Kingdom of Sweets. While true to its classical roots, Ballet Ouest’s version of The Nutcracker is firmly rooted in modernity thanks to the contribution of digital imagery and projections that allow us to follow Clara throughout her magical journey.

    More than 80 children from each region visited and 40 members of the corps de ballet gather on stage for this holiday classic, currently touring Montréal, St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Victoriaville, Trois-Rivières, l'Assomption and Saint-Jérôme.
