“Of all ‘The Nutcracker’ ballets produced in Canada today there's only one that speaks to the Canadian spirit.” – Gary Smith, The Hamilton Spectator
Canada’s Ballet Jörgen has performed The Nutcracker: A Canadian Tradition in Hamilton, ON since 2012. With each December performance over the years, their audience has grown and become a significant annual holiday tradition in and around Hamilton.
Selling out to a venue of over 2,000 seats is a major achievement for Canada’s Ballet Jörgen and supports the company’s philosophy of making ballet accessible for everyone. Canada’s Ballet Jörgen focuses on public outreach to schools and libraries while also making compelling contributions to organizations who assist children and families in need by donating tickets to organizations that support these causes. This approach has contributed to the outstanding reception and growth in Hamilton.
