 “A perfect first Nutcracker for many generations …. A powerful and beautiful thing to behold.” 

– Edmonton Journal


The Ukrainian Shumka Dancers, Edmonton’s Citie Ballet, Viter Ukrainian Folk Choir and Ukraine’s Virsky and Kyiv Ballet join forces for Clara's Dream…Edmonton’s Ukrainian Nutcracker!. In celebration of the Christmas season, Clara's Dream brings this Canadian-Ukrainian artistic collaboration to the Northern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium in December.


Clara's Dream is the only Ukrainian folk ballet representation of Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker. Given the famous composer's Ukrainian heritage, the production incorporates Ukrainian Christmas traditions, folk and character dance, a grand orchestral version of Shchedryk (Carol of the Bells), and Ukrainian symbols woven into the lavish sets and costumes.


Witness the story of the young Clara, her dream prince, the meddling mice and the magic of the holiday season. A delight for the senses, don't miss this unique presentation of the beloved Christmas classic.
