Olympic Ballet Theatre (OBT) of Edmonds, is please to announce the return of a traditional treat,
The Nutcracker, to theatres in Everett, Edmonds and Arlington. OBT opens its performance season with this ballet favorite, featuring world class guest artists Sayaka Ohtaki from Japan and Kuei-Hsien Chu from Taiwan, both currently in New York to prepare for the 2010 International Ballet Competition. OBT’s The Nutcracker has been a Puget Sound favorite for 29 years. Its exotic sets and costumes, dazzling choreography and lively score, highlight the story of Clara’s dream through beautiful Snowflakes, a sparkling Sugarplum Fairy, wonderful Mother Ginger with her little Buffoons, and a Christmas Tree that grows before your eyes! The Nutcracker is a delight for all ages!
