Symphony Nova Scotia is proud to present a special matinee performance of The Nutcracker just for students.
December 13, 2013, 1:00 PM
Rebecca Cohn Auditorium, Halifax
Featuring: Halifax Dance and Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia
Symphony Nova Scotia’s The Nutcracker has been Halifax’s favourite holiday tradition for more than 20 years. When a little girl’s toy comes to life, she’s whisked away to an enchanted world where she must overcome the ferocious Mouse Queen!
Featuring innovative giant puppets, spirited dancing, and Tchaikovsky’s hauntingly beautiful music, this tale of magic and wonder is a seasonal treat for all ages.
This special performance on Friday, December 13, at 1:00 PM offers your students the chance to see a magical ballet come to life on stage.
This performance is the full, two-hour Nutcracker, with a 20 minute intermission.
Cost: $12.50 per person (student or chaperone)
To reserve tickets: call the Dalhousie Arts Centre at 902.494.6406.
For home school parents please email your home school coordinator, Renee Babstock here. She will forward a request for all Home School tickets in one order.
