Alberta’s Ukrainian Nutcracker
A Christmas tradition returning to Camrose this season featuring Friday evening and Saturday Matinee performances. The Ukrainian Shumka Dancers and guests join forces for the Nutcracker.
Shumka’s Nutcracker is the only Ukrainian folk ballet representation of Tchaikovsky’s Christmas Classic. 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.
