Lily Verlaine and Jasper McCann snowstorm into Seattle’s illustrious Triple Door this December for the fourteenth-annual installment of Land Of The Sweets: The Burlesque Nutcracker, an award-winning wintertime spectacle that gives the traditional ballet a bawdy makeover. Featuring top-notch local dance talent, opulent bespoke costuming, and original choreography from classically trained, internationally recognized artist Lily Verlaine. This season’s production features original music inspired by the iconic Tchaikovsky ballet score arranged by Jasper McCann and music scholars Kate Olson and Michael Owcharuk, played live by a nine-piece jazz orchestra that features some of the most acclaimed musicians in the Pacific Northwest. All your favorite characters will be back, including Lily Verlaine’s Sugar Plum Fairy, Tory Peil’s “toreadora” Hot Chocolate, the light-juggling magic of Babette La Fave, and the ever-lovable Snowflakes.
