It is Nutcracker season at Pacific Northwest Ballet! 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. PNB’s annual Stowell/Sendak Nutcracker features over 200 roles danced by professional dancers and students, including two from North Bend. Sophia Blackmon, a fourth grade student at Opstad Elementary, is an “infantry” dancer, while Clara Soltys, also in fourth grade at Opstad, dances as a “servant.”
The Northwest’s favorite family tradition returns to Seattle Center’s Marion Oliver McCaw Hall for 30 performances December 7 through December 29. To learn more about the production, visit www.pnb.org.
