Alberta Ballet believes that live ballet is something every child should experience, regardless of their economic situation.  
This is why Alberta Ballet is pleased to work with sponsor partners to help distribute tickets to families who might not otherwise have the financial means for these kinds of cultural experiences.



The Sun Life Financial Nutcracker Dream is funded through Sun Life’s award-winning Making the Arts More Accessible™ program. 

Sun Life Financial's contribution creates the opportunity for 2,000 children in Calgary and Edmonton to be part of the Nutcracker experience.  

The Nutcracker is a family classic that tells the magical tale of Klara and her Nutcracker defeating the evil Rat Tsar and his army of mice. Set to Tchaikovsky’s timeless score and featuring the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra and the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra, this dazzling production is a holiday favorite around the world. 

We work with our partners at Kids Up Front to help connect this opportunity with deserving children and families. 

Thanks to Sun Life Financial, Alberta Ballet can reach out to young people and connect them with the world class art performance that is part of their local community.   

Thank you to our partners at Kids Up Front to help connect this opportunity with deserving children and families.
