Shumka is excited to be back on stage for three shows at the Northern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium, December 17 and 18, for Shumka’s Nutcracker. Tickets are on sale now starting at $ 25. Shumka’s Nutcracker is not only a luxurious Christmas performance loved by all, but it is also a true Edmonton production, created and performed by local artists. Featuring ballet, folk dance, and character dance, Shumka’s The Nutcracker is a celebration of Tchaikovsky’s beloved Christmas classic. Shumka’s Nutcracker combines the grace and lyrical nature of classical movement with the force and power of Ukrainian character dance, leaving audiences excited and entertained. Along with members of the Shumka company, the production features dancers from the Kyiv Ballet, a choir made up of local vocalists and young dancers from the Shumka School. The musical arrangements are by Yuri Shevchenko of Ukraine, choreographed by Viktor Lytvynov of the Kyiv Ballet and John Pichlyk, under the direction of Shumka’s Senior Creative Director Les Sereda. The costumes are by Maria Levitska of the Ukrainian National Opera and the lighting by Jeff Osterlin of Edmonton.
