Post subject:  Royal Winnipeg Ballet's Nutcracker - November 26, 2002:
The Nutcracker retold prairie style The RWB’s Canadian Nutcracker is a uniquely Canadian reworking of E.T.A. Hoffmann’s classic tale, The Nutcracker and the Mouse King.

The names remain the same, but instead of the main character, 12-year-old Clara receiving a carved, wooden nutcracker doll from her godfather Mr. Drosselmeier, she receives it from his grandson Julien.

Clara is smitten with Julien -- a theme that will play out later in the ballet.
