Treat your loved ones to Pacific Northwest Ballet's famous Stowell & Sendak Nutcracker, that The New York Times described as "original and exciting. This beautifully imagined production was created by PNB Founding Artistic Director Kent Stowell and author/illustrator Maurice Sendak (Where the Wild Things Are) and features over 200 dancers, gigantic moving sets, a snowfall every performance, and - the magical sound of the season - Tchaikovsky's beloved score performed by the PNB Orchestra.
Nutcracker is the PNB's great repertory ballet. With multiple performances each season, Baby Mice can dream of one day being Party girls and Chinese dancers, Snowflakes, and Flowers and, ultimately, the role of Clara, in which Company women make their debut as ballerina. As students and Company grow up through Nutcracker, so the ballet grows with us, constantly renewing itself and offering challenges and insights about ballet, and life, to the next generation.
