This is the first year since 1955 that Toronto audiences will not be able to watch the holiday classic that’s set in a winter wonderland and features celebrity cameos.
The pandemic has forced the National Ballet of Canada to cancel its annual production of The Nutcracker along with all performances set for November and December. The company says the safety of audiences and artists is their foremost priority. The ballet still intends to proceed with its winter season next March and summer season next June at the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts in Toronto.
