Dazzling costumes and exquisite sets --- including a colorful carousel and a larger-than-life Christmas tree --- make this very original version of the classic ballet a must-see for the entire family.
"The Nutcracker" is Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky's classic family-friendly ballet about a German girl named Clara on Chistmas Eve who dreams of a magical party.
Set in turn-of-the-century Pittsburgh, this grand-scale production features scenes of old-time Pittsburgh, including Kaufmann's clock, a Heinz delivery truck and a beautiful view of Mt. Washington during the famous first act snow scene.
Presented by the Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre. For show times and tickets, call (412) 456-6666.
