You’ll have three opportunities in the next week or so to experience Tchaikovsky’s famous holiday-themed ballet The Nutcracker.
On Dec. 16-17, the local young people’s theatre group Class Act is performing a live version at Conexus Arts Centre. Full-length ballets will be performed each evening at 7:30 p.m., while a shorter child-friendly version goes Thursday at 12:30 p.m. You can get ticket information on the CAC website.
Prior to that, the RPL Theatre is screening a special broadcast of the ballet as performed by the Royal Ballet at the London Opera House. That goes Sunday Dec. 13 at 2 p.m. Tickets for that are Adult $15, Senior $12 and Student $10. In addition, Galaxy Cinemas is presenting a Royal Ballet production of The Nutcracker on Sunday Dec. 20 at 12:55 p.m.
