Olympic Ballet Theatre charms and enchants this holiday with its annual full-length performance of Tchaikovsky's The Nutcracker in an intimate venue. The Nutcracker is the timeless tale of a young girl who receives the gift of a nutcracker at a family Christmas party and then embarks on a dream adventure featuring a growing Christmas tree, booming canon and a larger-than-life Mother Ginger and her bouncing buffoons. OBT's exceptionally talented dancers, guest artists, and colorful costumes, scenery and staging brings E.T.A. Hoffman's original story to life at Edmonds Center for the Arts.
The performance runs two hours, with one 15-minute intermission.
