Stowell & Sendak Nutcracker

Stowell & Sendak Nutcracker

Presented by Pacific Northwest Ballet

Making Magical Memories for 30 Years!

Created by PNB Founding Artistic Director Kent Stowell and world-famous author and illustrator Maurice Sendak, this masterful Nutcracker production is like no other in the world. With live orchestra, magnificent sets and costumes, and over 200 roles danced by professional dancers and students, nothing fills hearts with holiday magic like PNB’s Nutcracker!

“From the absolute charm of seeing all the adorable kids in velvet dresses and shiny shoes to the mouth dropping awe of the truly magnificent set, we were as swept away as the 8-year-olds. Nutcracker is all the good parts of Christmas…It’s a great holiday date for couples, obviously a delight and treat for children and a wholly elegant way to deck the halls. It’s never too late to start a tradition and we seriously suggest you go.” --seattlest
