Across North America and Europe this is a true Yuletide tradition. In Regina, Do It With Class Young People’s Theatre is doing the honours with this presention of Tchaikovsky’s famous ballet by Vancouver’s Coastal City Ballet.

That’s how I blurbed this in the 14 Days section of our Dec. 13 edition. The performance goes Thursday and Friday at Conexus Arts Centre with two shows daily at 12:30 and 7:30 p.m. Tickets are Adults $29.50, Seniors & Students $25.50, Youth 7-12 $21.50, with Children 6 & under $14.50, and can be obtained by calling 525-9999.

To give you a taste, here’s an except from a few years ago of a performance of The Nutcracker by the Kirov Ballet in St. Petersburg, Russia.
