Goh Ballet’s The Nutcracker returns to The Centre in Vancouver!

November 17, 2013

The future of Goh Ballet?s glittering production of The Nutcracker was in jeopardy back in May, when it was announced that its holiday venue, The Centre, was being
sold. But an agreement between the Goh Ballet and the new owners of the venue, means “Christmas is saved” in an arrangement that will hopefully continue for years to come. 

 

One of the most popular ballets in the world, Goh Ballet?s The Nutcracker  has been called ?The one to see? by The Province and is a beloved holiday classic for the
whole family. 

 

?We are thrilled to welcome audiences as we celebrate our fifth year and due to popular demand, we will have performances over the course of two weeks. Our Nutcracker has become a holiday
tradition in Vancouver and it warms my heart to have the support of our communities,” said Chan Hon Goh, Executive Producer of Goh Ballet?s The Nutcracker.
