Since1983 Pacific Northwest Ballet’s Stowell & Sendak Nutcracker has been the Northwest’s favorite family tradition during the holiday season.
. Praised by The New York Times as “original and exciting” PNB’s unique production is the brilliant result of close collaboration between PNB Founding Artistic Director and choreographer Kent Stowell and renowned children's book author and illustrator Maurice Sendak. Drawing on E.T.A. Hoffman's The Nutcracker and the Mouse King, Stowell and Sendak delved deeply into the original story and infused the ballet with a drama and strength that fully complements Tchaikovsky's classic score.
