Evergreen City Ballet reimagines the Nutcracker experience with an exciting at-home dance film. Nutcracker Suites explores the origin and history of this popular ballet in a unique docu-dance film, which draws from Evergreen City Ballet’s 25+ year legacy of celebrating inclusion, artistry, and community through dance.
Nutcracker Suites is more than a performance film! The experience will bring audiences beyond the stage into the Evergreen City Ballet Nutcracker universe with a variety of stories, for a one-of-a-kind show that will delight all ages.
Evergreen City Ballet is pleased to partner with the Bellevue Youth Symphony Orchestra for the iconic Waltz of the Flowers, and beloved Seattle performer Mx. Aleksa Manila will reprise her 2019 role of Mother Ginger. The performance also includes two very special guest artists from New York City Ballet, Georgina Pazcoguin (Co-Founder of Final Bow Yellow Face), and Alec Knight.
Gather your family or social pod, put on your finery, and join us for one of three versions of the film. Each week’s edit will feature a different chorus of talented local dance students. See the film any time during a 72-hour viewing period each weekend — Friday to Sunday.
The Nutcracker is the holiday tradition you can’t miss, and Nutcracker Suites is sure to make the evening a night to remember.
