If you come in from the West don't count on bus #58 to get you back there, the last one is scheduled for 1107, but must have gone through earlier; had to walk to Morrison to catch the MAX.

Not a lot of food options on a Sunday night, especially if you are going with kids. Plan a head to eat elsewhere than right by the venue.

Fabulous seats! Even better when the lady next to me mentioned she payed 3 times as much to pick her perfect seat! The performance was spectacular. This event will definitely become part of our Christmas festivities!

Description

The heart is a child …

… awakening to the magic of the season. Light the fire in a child’s heart (and spark your own childhood wonder) with this beloved trip into a land where toy soldiers fight rat armies, snowflakes come dancing to life and the sugarplum fairy presides over it all with the wave of a wand. Each year George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker sets the season a-sparkle, creating memories your family will cherish forever.
