Synopsis

A Nutcracker Documentary

Following on from the success of “Fallen Prince”, our short film which was selected for the Court Metrage at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival earlier this year, Goh Ballet has produced a new featured documentary which will be released online for complimentary streaming from December 10, 2021 – January 10, 2022.

The Nutcracker is the brass ring of the ballet world, what young dancers everywhere seek to grasp on their way to the top. In “The Reality of a Dream,” five teen hopefuls prepare to participate in the biggest performance of the year, guided by prima ballerina Chan Hon Goh, their mentor at Canada’s world-renowned Goh Ballet Academy. This thrilling documentary goes behind the scenes to show what it takes to be extraordinary.
