The Nutcracker Has Returned

Since 1989, OBT has thrilled Portland audiences with its annual performances of the Nutcracker. Last year this cherished tradition was suspended leaving an empty stage in place of our beloved production. As we return to a more familiar world, we do so with a sense that nothing can be taken for granted – especially a time honored tradition that connects us through music and dance. Celebrate the return of Portland’s favorite holiday tradition, George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker®. Once again we will join Marie and her charming Nutcracker Prince as they are swept away by dancing snowflakes to a magical land of sweets ruled by the Sugar Plum Fairy and all to the music of Tchaikovsky’s brilliant score!

Experience the wonder as OBT brings this cherished fairy tale to life, December 11-26 at the Keller Auditorium. Tickets start at just $24

Enjoy ballet with the entire family! Kids can save up to 50% with a Family Subscription Package, which includes George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker®Dracula, OBT School’s annual performance On Stage featuring the talent dancers of OBT’s junior company, OBT2.
