“A popular ballet is set to return to Mississauga, just in time for the holidays.
The Nutcracker, which is set to hit the Living Arts Centre on Dec. 4, will feature a special performance aimed to transport guests to a “dazzling winter wonderland” amid the holiday season.
While it is based on the story The Nutcracker and the King of Mice, written by E.T.A. Hoffman, details within live performances vary and can sometimes differ from the original tale.
The basic plot, however, usually remains the same and features a young girl who has dreams of a nutcracker prince and a battle against a mouse king, according to the Nutcracker ballet’s website.
Set to Tchaikovsky’s music, the upcoming show at the Living Arts Centre will include some beloved and recognizable songs including “Waltz of the Flowers”, “Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy” and “Waltz of the Snowflakes”.
Through the ballet, guests will be able to experience holiday magic through a world of toy soldiers and various other colourful characters.
There will be two performances on Dec. 4 that will take place from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Pre-show dining at the Living Arts Centre will be available before the evening show at the LIVE Restaurant.
Tickets are on sale now and start at $55.
