Light the fire in a child’s heart (and spark your own childhood wonder) with this beloved trip into a land where toy soldiers fight rat armies, snowflakes come dancing to life and the sugarplum fairy presides over it all with the wave of a wand. Each year George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker sets the season a-sparkle, creating memories your family will cherish forever.

The whole family, from grandparents to toddlers, will be blown away by the gorgeous scenery, costumes, and cast of 26 professional dancers (plus appearances by over 100 Portland area kids!).
