We are thrilled to see and delighted to support The Nutcracker again this year, celebrating all the wonder of the season with the talented and creative crew, onstage and backstage.
Returning for its 9th holiday season, prestigious local dance organization Goh Ballet presents The Nutcracker at The Centre. Since premiering in 2009, the production of this masterpiece has given tens of thousands of audience members the opportunity to be swept away by this world-famous Christmas story.
This year’s production features Principal Dancers Jerome Tisserand and Elizabeth Murphy from the Pacific Northwest Ballet, who will perform as the Cavalier Prince and the Sugarplum Fairy, respectively, alongside more than two hundred local and international talents.
今年舞剧将由来自西北太平洋舞团的 Jerome Tisserand 和 Elizabeth Murphy 领衔，分别扮演Cavalier王子和糖梅仙子，还有超过两百多名本土及国际舞蹈达人倾力加入。
The cast will dance to choreography by Emmy award winning dance visionary, Anna-Marie Holmes, as well as musical accompaniment by the Vancouver Opera Orchestra, which will be performing Tchaikovsky’s iconic Nutcracker Suite, under the musical direction of Conductor Leslie Dala.
曾获Emmy奖的 Anna-Marie Holmes 将为此剧编舞，温哥华歌剧交响乐团为演出配乐，Leslie Dala担当指挥，演奏柴可夫斯基的代表作《胡桃夹子》组曲。
Unlike other storytelling mediums, the ballet has very few words. We decide what we want to believe and watch it play out, a feast to all our visual and aural faculties except those mechanical turns by which we process words.
Like the holidays, the nuance, the execution, and the final result are open to our interpretation. The Nutcracker is a must-see piece of our holiday culture, from which there is a lot to learn. Come join us at the theatre on Friday, December 15th to enjoy the season and joyous holiday spirit!
