The Nutcracker

From November 28th through December 30th The Pacific Northwest Ballet presents Stowell & Sendak's 25th Anniversary of The Nutcracker.

Tonight I'm going to see it for a friend's birthday celebration. The ballet is based on the story "The Nutcracker and the King of Mice" written by E.T.A. Hoffman. Although what is seen on the stage today is different in detail from the original story, the basic plot remains the same; The story of a young German girl who dreams of a Nutcracker (who becomes a Prince) and a battle against a Mouse King.

It's a classic! Maybe I'll write a review.

  1. Karen and I used to see this every year. You'll have to tell me how it was. I miss things like that.
