Pacific Northwest Ballet director and choreographer Kent Stowell collaborated with renowned children's book author Maurice Sendak to create a unique vision of Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker. This holiday favorite is a delightful and dramatic ballet that tells the magical story of a young girl who receives a Nutcracker as a gift at her family's Christmas party. That night, she dreams that her Nutcracker comes to life and together they experience a grand adventure that takes them through an epic battle and a land of snow to the Kingdom of Sweets. This lavish production features a live orchestra, a tree that really grows, magnificent costumes and sets, and a snowfall at every performance, making it a holiday favorite in Seattle for 30 seasons.

Maybe the best local burlesque that I've seen. The dancers were above and beyond many other groups like Can-can, and the choreographers, Lily Verlaine, Kitten LaRue, Olivier Wevers, made the show and experience not to be forgotten. I want more!
Quotes & Highlights
- "Hands down the best show I've seen all year." --Jessica Price, burlesqueseattle.com
L’Edition Francaise is a split bill of dance and burlesque by Lily Verlaine (Artistic Director and choreographer of The Burlesque Nutcracker), Kitten LaRue (Artistic Director and choreographer of The Atomic Bombshells) and Olivier Wevers (Artistic Director and Choreographer, Whim W’Him).
The three choreographers will present new dance and burlesque works set to the sensational catalogues of artists Serge Gainsbourg, Hugues LeBars Francoise Hardy, France Gall, Brigitte Bardot, and other French icons. Weaving their own French paradox, Verlaine, LaRue and Wevers explore eros, farce, manipulation, naiveté and alluring indifference in three individual short programs.
This is a provocative evening of Francophilia not to be missed!
