Establishing a true winter tradition in Mission, Artistic Director John C. Carney returns with the Fraser Valley Academy of Dance for its 10th season to the Clarke Theatre on December 9, 2017 to present his choreography of the Nutcracker ballet.

Having danced many roles in the Nutcracker with English National Ballet every winter season in London during his many years with the company, Mr. Carney brings an in-depth professional knowledge of this full-length classical ballet to this local stage.  Over 100 students from his Academy will perform alongside professional guest artists including US professional dancer Alexander Negron (Milwaukee Ballet, San Francisco Ballet, Oregon Ballet Theatre, School of American Ballet), Mission actor Shelley Janze as Mrs. Stahlbaum and Vancouver-based Justin Reist as the infamous King Rat.

Join the Stahlbaums’ festive party and follow Clara into her dream to witness the magical battle between Soldiers and Rats.  Travel along with the mysterious Drosselmeyer through Snowflakes and across the serene Ocean to the Kingdom of Sweets to meet the Nutcracker Prince and the Sugar Plum Fairy.  Be enchanted by the colourful and exciting dances of the Candy Canes, Flowers, Arabian, Spanish, Chinese, Smarties and Russian accompanied by Tchaikovsky’s imaginative score.

All the family will enjoy the magic of this traditional winter classic!
