Shumka’s Nutcracker blends the grace and lyricism of classical movement with the strength and power of Ukrainian folk and character dance. This classic tale of young Clara and her dream Prince incorporates Ukrainian traditions and symbols, grand orchestral versions of Tchaikovsky’s legendary score, and lavish sets and costumes designed by National Opera of Ukraine’s Maria Levitska. Exuberant entertainment!
