The Nutcracker Returns!

Join us for the magic at McCaw Hall this holiday season. Are you ready to celebrate the holidays with renewed gusto? With its classic score, thrilling dance, resplendent costumes and scenery, and magical story, George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker® is the perfect centerpiece for any celebration. Gather your loved ones to come enjoy our beautifully decked hall, and let your soul have its fill of holiday cheer.

“The Nutcracker at our theater is for children young and old. That is, for children and for adults who are children at heart. Because, if an adult is a good person, in his heart he is still a child. In every person the best, the most important part is that which remains from his childhood.” —George Balanchine

Ballet in Two Acts, Four Scenes, and Prologue
based on E.T.A. Hoffman’s tale, The Nutcracker and the Mouse King (1816)

Run Time: 2 hours and 3 minutes, including a 25-minute intermission.
