Year of Production: 2017
Duration: 1 heure
Since 1964, The Nutcracker has been the undisputed biggest production of Les Grands Ballets Canadiens: more than 2 million spectators to date, the show’s 165 characters and costumes, 70 dancers, more than 100 children selected in audition, 65 musicians, 2 conductors, hundreds of craftsmen and technicians, 1,500 pairs of pointe shoes...In fact, in contrast to the silence that reigns supreme in the concert hall and the serenity on the stage, what happens backstage is a real show in itself.
Tinged by the magic of Christmas and intended for a family audience, the documentary is a unique opportunity to discover the magical universe of this renowned ballet. Viewers will be taken to the nerve-centre and euphoria of backstage activity to experience the emotional highs and low, and twists and turns the leading characters go through during rehearsal and on stage.
This exclusive invitation is a superb opportunity to enjoy it all: nobody has ever gone backstage at The Nutcracker before. This Christmas, treat yourself to a backstage pass at Les Grands Ballets Canadiens and enter the real world of dance!
