The classic 1892 Nutcracker Ballet grows up in this all-out spectacular rebirth, merging burlesque, ballet, jazz, comedy and a whole lot of glamour. Cue “Land of the Sweets: The Burlesque Nutcracker.” Now in its 14th year — this spectacular holiday show has won the hearts of audiences young and old and created a romping holiday tradition in Seattle. Join us, as we draw back the velvet curtain and follow the show’s creators and producers, Lily Verlaine and Jasper McCann, in addition to the show’s artisans, performers and musicians, and take an irresistible journey into how this magical show is brought to the stage, snow and all.

Being captures the restorative power that draws the dancer to the joy of movement. Away from a life of urban sidewalks and cellphones, where beauty is unnoticed, time stops so it may start again. The dance restores the self, and the senses reconnect with the world, like a flower bouncing back from being stepped on.
