Oregon Ballet Theatre remains the only company west of the Mississippi licensed to perform George Balanchine’s version of Tchaikovsky’s classic, and they offer fifteen performances between December 14 and 24 this year. Light the fire in a child’s heart and spark your own childlike 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. FYI, Edmund Stone makes his annual appearance in the party scene on Saturday evening, Dec. 21! Tickets and information at OBT.
