Pacific Northwest Ballet can proudly lay claim to the world's most recognized and celebrated productions of Nutcracker. Nutcracker is a one-of-a-kind holiday delight with over 200 dazzling dancers, colossal moving scenery, live orchestra, and a gorgeous snowfall every performance.
Did you know:
• PNB’s Nutcracker is the result of a collaboration between Founding Artistic Director, Kent Stowell and author/illustrator Maurice Sendak.
• Over two million people have seen PNB’s Nutcracker.
• The women dance through 500 pairs of pointe shoes in one Nutcracker season.
