Full production of Nutcracker by Emerald Ballet Theatre in Bothell

Sunday, December 4, 2011

Northshore Performing Arts Center Foundation and Emerald Ballet Theatre (EBT) are proud to present The Nutcracker on December 10 and 11 at 2:00 pm at the Northshore Performing Arts Center (NPAC), 18125 92nd Ave NE, Bothell. All performances will feature the Rainier Symphony Orchestra with David Waltman conducting.

Now in its fifth season, EBT brings E.T.A. Hoffman's timeless tale to life with live music, lavish costumes, sumptuous sets and exquisite choreography. Artistic director Viktoria Titova previously traveled around the world as a ballerina with the Bolshoi Theatre Grigorovich Company. EBT's Nutcracker draws on this rich Russian classical tradition.

Over 175 students from Emerald Ballet Academy will dance alongside regional professionals and international guest artists. Ballet West's Stephen King and Whitney Huell (who was singled out as one of the "Top 25 to Watch" in the January 2011 issue of Dance Magazine) will perform.

This stellar line-up is not the only thing audiences will be excited about. EBT's Nutcracker is affordable and accessible, making it perfect for families and a great introduction to live theatre. The matinee performances are ideal for children to attend. Little ones won't need to squirm to see, as every seat in the intimate NPAC theatre provides excellent views of the stage. Parking is ample, close and free.

So support your local arts and enjoy the many pleasures of this professional production. For young and old alike, EBT's Nutcracker is sure to be a highlight of the holiday season.

Tickets are reasonably priced: $20 for youth, $30 for seniors, and $35 for adults. Tickets are available online.
