During your stay at the King Edward, you might have the opportunity to check out The Nutcracker, a holiday tradition at the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts. Writer Sandra Williams-Hervé recently reported on the production, which runs until January 5, 2013.

Williams-Hervé writes: “From start to finish the ballet is visually stunning. Be it the beautiful, highly detailed costumes, or the multi-faceted sets and the flawless performances, the evening you spent at the ballet will be etched in your memory for years to come. Geddes has performed in three versions of The Nutcracker; however, James Kudelka’s 1995 take on the holiday classic, in her opinion, is the best of all.”
