Xing Bang Fu’s Nutcracker Doll is an innovative reimagining of the timeless holiday classic. 

The ballet is presented in three acts as a compelling, modern journey to self-awareness, following Clara as she moves from a life of struggle and conflict to a existence where she is accepted not only by others, but by herself.

This year’s production will feature new costumes by Eric Wong and sets by Simon Sylvain Lalonde, with a design scheme reflecting the three stages of Clara’s journey: the binary struggle (black and white); a modified mind-set (white); and, ultimately, acceptance (refreshing colour).

The audience is guided through the journey by Xing’s characteristic and distinct style, with a choreographed fusion of dance styles that promises to be a transformative experience for all.
