There is no better way to celebrate the holiday season than a trip to see the Nutcracker, one of Seattle’s favorite holiday traditions. Now in its 29th season, Pacific Northwest Ballet’s rendition of the Nutcracker runs Dec. 7-29 at Marion Oliver McCaw Hall on the Seattle Center campus. The holidays wouldn’t be the same without the ballets beloved mice and nutcrackers dancing to choreography by Kent Stowell, featuring one-of-a-kind set and costume by renowned children's book author Maurice Sendak and music by Peter Tchaikovsky.
The Nutcracker tells the story of the Christmas Eve adventure a young girl named Clara experiences many years ago in a tiny town in Germany. Clara’s magical night begins with the gift of a wooden Nutcracker from her mysterious Godfather Herr Drosselmeier and takes many exciting and whimsical turns, ending with Clara waking in her room, making one wonder where the fantasy begins and ends.
