Seen above as a snowflake, Corps de Ballet dancer Marisa Grywalski makes her Sugar Plum Fairy debut Friday night! Named one of Pointe Magazine’s “Stars of the Corps,” Grywalski is sure to shine in the regal poses, lingering balances and quicksilver turns that place the Sugar Plum Pas de Deux at the pinnacle of the show's virtuoso dancing.

Did you know Artistic Director Terrence S. Orr mixes up the cast for every single one of our performances? This is your chance to spot rising talents in principal roles and just one of the reasons Orr says "you could watch all 26 shows and discover something new each time."

 The Post-Gazette says there are few things more "quintessentially Christmas " than the The Nutcracker. And our "sparkling" production is "much like opening a toy chest chock full of Pittsburgh treasures, past, present and...new dance gems."
