The Nutcracker | Episode 12
The Nutcracker ballet is a beloved holiday classic all over the world. E.T.A Hoffmann’s story “The Nutcracker and the Mouse King,” paired with Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s score, bring holiday dreams to life. Each year the National Ballet of Canada produces a spectacular production of The Nutcracker that includes rollerblading bears and the spectacular National Ballet Orchestra. This week, we are joined by the orchestra’s assistant concertmaster Dr. Lynn Kuo; who has played over 500 Nutcrackers with the National Ballet! She shares her favourite moments in the show, a few backstage secrets and what it takes to make the Nutcracker, musically, come to life.
