Overview

For more than 20 years, the Pacific Northwest Ballet’s performance of Nutcracker has been the Christmas family event to attend in the Northwest. Highlighted by Maurice Sendak’s stunning production design and Kent Stowell’s inventive choreography (which emphasizes the darker psychological aspects of E. T. A. Hoffmann’s original story), the ballet has been a critical and popular success. Fans of the performance can now relive each scene through the pages of this exquisite keepsake edition. From the Christmas party where young Clara is given a simple nutcracker, to her adventures and romance in the enchanted kingdom of the Nutcracker Prince, Angela Sterling’s photographs capture all the magic of this beloved work. Designed for children, the book’s handsome images and seasonal charm make this a thoughtful gift for adult balletomanes as well.

Seattle's Pacific Northwest Ballet is a regional dance company with an international reputation. For more than 20 years, its production of The Nutcracker has been attracting sellout audiences and admiring reviews. Kent Stowell's inventive, carefully nuanced choreography presents an alluring darker side of E.T.A. Hoffmann's original 1816 story, while Maurice Sendak's grandly outlandish stage designs add a contemporary feel to Tchaikovsky's immortal music. This beautifully designed keepsake pictorial presents the holiday classic in all its visual grandeur and gaiety.
