Making its premiere with sumptuous sets and costumes by famed author and illustrator Ian Falconer (Olivia the Pig), the Pacific Northwest Ballet's exciting new production of The Nutcracker debuts with George Balanchine's original choreography, the PNB orchestra playing the cherished Tchaikovsky score and 48 dazzling dancers taking the stage at Seattle's McCaw Hall. This iconic version of the popular holiday ballet tells the timeless story of young Clara, who receives a nutcracker soldier as a gift and has a magical dream that her toy comes to life. Together they experience a grand adventure that takes them through an epic battle with the Rat King to the Sugar Plum Fairy's magical Land of Sweets.
Total running time is about two hours and six minutes including a 25-minute intermission.
