The Nutcracker Comes To Bellingham

After a 2-year hiatus, Opus Performing Arts returns to the stage this holiday season with "The Nutcracker" at 7:00 p.m. on December 15 & 16, 2021 at Mount Baker Theatre-Bellingham. Audiences are sure to enjoy this classic winter ballet with a unique theatrical twist. "The Nutcracker" will feature OPUS’ younger ballet students as cupcakes, peppermints, gingersnaps and other denizens of the Kingdom of Sweets, as well as their advanced dancers in the iconic roles of Dewdrop, Nutcracker Prince, Snow Queen and the Sugar Plum Fairy. This exciting performance is appropriate for all ages and will include many new surprises in addition to favorite audience moments. Performances of OPUS’ Nutcracker will be available for viewing either in-person at the Mount Baker Theatre (proof of vaccination or a negative test for ages 12+ required) or by live-streaming the performance for at-home viewing.

"In the last two years, OPUS students kept up their training through classes over zoom. It’s been a challenging two years and we are beyond excited to celebrate OPUS’ return to the stage. We have missed the thrill of performing for a live audience and sharing our love of dance with the community. We welcome you back to the theatre for this holiday classic” - Brooke Evans, Artistic Director, OPUS

 "This is a truly unique approach to The Nutcracker for our Bellingham audience. We lead our students in discovering new skills through the process and ultimately deliver an unforgettable rendition of a classic tale." - Ian Bivins, Co-Director.
