Cherished holiday tradition The Nutcracker will return to the stage for live performances in Toronto this Christmas season.
But the National Ballet of Canada’s presentation will have some modifications.
No children under 12 will be allowed in the production and their roles will be performed by students of the Ballet School.
But kids under 12 are allowed in the audience with proof of a negative COVID-19 test. Audiences members must show proof of vaccination, and wear masks other than when eating or drinking. The theatre will operate at 50 percent capacity.
All performers and crew will be fully vaccinated.
Additionally, the role of the Cannon Dolls will not be performed by celebrity guests this year.
The Nutcracker runs at the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts December 10th to 31st.
