The Nutcracker is a favourite tradition for families over the holidays, so when it was cancelled last season, the holidays just didn’t feel the same.

Today, the National Ballet of Canada announced the principal casting for its anticipated return to the stage December 10 – December 31, 2021.

Principal Dancer Siphesihle November will make his debut as Peter/The Nutcracker opposite Corps de Ballet Member Tirion Law, who debuts as the Sugar Plum Fairy.

The opening night on December 10 at 7:00 p.m. will feature Principal Dancers Naoya Ebe and Tina Pereira in the roles of Peter/The Nutcracker and the Sugar Plum Fairy. First Soloist Calley Skalnik will dance the role of the Snow Queen, and First Soloist Donald Thom will dance the role of Uncle Nikolai.

Others making their debuts include Principal Dancer Ben Rudisin as Uncle Nikolai, and Second Soloist Genevieve Penn Nabity as the Snow Queen.

Full casting details are found [HERE].
