Each year George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker sets the season a-sparkle, creating memories for Portland area families. This year 7 performances will feature the full OBT Orchestra. Ballet lovers got to take a trip into a land where toy soldiers fight rat armies, snowflakes come dancing to life and the  sugarplum fairy presides over it all with the wave of a wand. Oregon Ballet Theatre continues to delight.
