The NutcrackerThe Nutcracker

December 12, 2014, 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 12, 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.

 

Ballet Jorgen’s Cinderella

April 17, 2015 at 10:30 am
Rebecca Cohn Auditorium, Halifax

Featuring:  Arhur Post, conductor Canada's Ballet Jörgen Prokofiev: Cinderella

Symphony Nova Scotia partners with Canada's Ballet Jörgen to present one of Prokofiev's most musical creations! Bengt Jörgen's inventive, lively choreography fuses with Prokofiev's sparkling, bombastic score to tell the beloved tale of Cinderella - complete with deliciously wicked stepsisters, a miraculous trip to the ball, and of course, a whirlwind romantic fantasy that ends with true love. Don't miss this "classic refreshed" (National Post) that's "destined to live happily ever after" (Globe and Mail).

Cost: $12.50 per person (student or chaperone)

To reserve tickets: call the Dalhousie Arts Centre at 902.494.6406.
