THE ONLY EDUCATIVE CULTURAL PROGRAM IN SUPPORT TO CHILDREN FROM DISADVANTAGED COMMUNITIES

Created in 1997 by the Grands Ballets, The Nutcracker Fund for children is:



  • the chance for 1500 students from disadvantaged social backgrounds to be selected each year by The Ministère de l’Éducation, du Loisir et du Sport du Québec to participate in educational workshops;

  • the chance for 2800 underprivileged and sick children to attend a free performance of The Nutcracker;

  • the annual renewal of the sets and costumes for The Nutcracker.


So far, 24,600 children have experienced this unique holiday magic, thanks to generous contributions from businesses and individuals.
