Lyrical and enchanting, mesmerizing and magical, The Nutcracker has become a holiday tradition around the world.
Founder and Artistic Director of Northwest Ballet Theater, John Bishop brings his special Nutcracker based on the original Russian ballet version where it was first performed in St. Petersburg in 1892. Northwest Ballet’s production features beautiful choreography, backdrops painted in Russia, and costumes made in New York City.
Fun fact: Although it was first performed in St. Petersburg, Russia in 1892, it was not until 1944 that it was performed in the US by the San Francisco Ballet and in 1954, George Balanchine choreographed/ premiered his version with the New York City Ballet.
