The Nutcracker

When: Nov. 26-28 2010

A charming feature of the mid-1990s Seattle public school system was its yearly mass pilgrimage to the Pacific Northwest Ballet, wherein hundreds of 6- to 10-year-olds squirmed their way through The Nutcracker and afterward wrote five-sentence reports about it. My second-grade effort was a comprehensive list of all the things in the production that were pink — including a dancer dressed as an ostrich. Did I make that up? Did Tchaikovsky's masterpiece include flightless desert fowl? Prove me wrong at the Colorado Springs Philharmonic's production with Ballet Idaho at 7 tonight at the Pikes Peak Center (190 S. Cascade Ave., csphilharmonic.org). Shows also run tomorrow at 2 and 7, or Sunday at 2, with tickets between $27 and $50, and substantial discounts for children 17 and under. — Claire Swinford
