In 2009, Chan Hon Goh, former Principal Dancer of The National Ballet of Canada, produced the premiere of Goh Ballet’s lavish and unique "The Nutcracker", setting a tradition for Vancouver to embrace. The overwhelming success of Goh Ballet’s The Nutcracker reaffirms that large-scale, classical productions are inspiring and meaningful for dancers and audiences alike. Goh Ballet’s The Nutcracker continues to be the only locally produced and critically acclaimed production of this Christmas favorite in Vancouver. Over the past eleven years, the production has featured Principal Dancers from American Ballet Theatre, The National Ballet of Canada, San Fransisco Ballet, Bavarian State Ballet, and the National Ballet of China among many others.


In the classic fairy-tale of Clara and the Nutcracker Prince, she rescues him from the sword of the evil Mouse King. But, in 2020, evil is all the uncertainties that torment a fallen prince in pursuit of a career in the world of ballet. Separated from his family during the lockdown, Alex, a 20-year-old struggling dancer, spends the cold, pandemic ridden winter in isolation and is forced to re-examine everything that was once familiar and is no longer, until he meets his Clara. Will he find the resolve to continue on his journey?


The Nutcracker: Beyond the Stage is an original story which will transport audiences through a young dancer’s passage, portraying hope, resilience and strength in pursuit of artistic dreams. In the context of the past, the present and the future, ballet aficionados, fans and families alike will savour memborable scenes from Goh Ballet’s classic performances of The Nutcracker. Resonating with many who have experienced challenges, hardships and change as a consequence of the global pandemic, this film will stand for human courage, resilience and empowerment as we navigate through these unique times.


  In it’s twelfth year, despite the challenges presented by the pandemic, Goh Ballet will keep the grandeur and tradition of The Nutcracker alive by producing a virtual rendition of an original dance story on film.
