Land of the Sweets: The Burlesque Nutcracker
Dec 7, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 7:00 pm, repeating until Dec 28, 2017
Lily Verlaine and Jasper McCann snowstorm into Seattle’s illustrious Triple Door this December for the twelfth-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 custom costuming, and original choreography from classically trained, internationally recognized artist Lily Verlaine. New this year, music arranged by Jasper McCann and music scholars Kate Olson and Michael Owcharuk from the original Tchaikovsky ballet score played by a nine-piece orchestra featuring some of the greatest jazz musicians in the region. 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-loveable Snowflakes.
