The 7:30 p.m. concert will feature scenes from Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker, with principal dancers Alexei Geronimo and Julia Ueda.

“Tremendous local support is always there for this Christmas Nutcracker dance concert, so come early for what promises to be a spectacular festive evening,” says local arts promoter Tony Antonias.

Jin “Jack” Zhang, the orchestra’s music director and conductor, has arranged a program of holiday favourites, with offerings such as Carol Festival, Sleigh Ride and Christmas Festival alongside the Nutcracker selections.

“A full symphony orchestra, the Richmond Academy of Dance with principal dancers Alexei Geronimo and Julia Ueda – it’s bound to be a festive treat for your eyes and ears,” Antonias says.
