The Nutcracker 2013

 Created in 1964 for Les Grands Ballets Canadiens de Montreal, this adaptation of the Hoffmann tale by Quebec dancer choreographer Fernand Nault (1920-2006) is among the most beautiful in existence. It is performed by some one hundred dancers, with sumptuous sets designed by Peter Horne, scintillating costumes by François Barbeau, and lighting by Nicholas Cernovitch. Every year, more than 600 children audition for parts, and some one hundred are chosen for the roles of Mice, Rats, Angels, Reindeer, Sheep, Matriochkas, Orientals, Children at the Party and, of course, Clara and Fritz.
