A winter wonderland awaits at Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre’s The Nutcracker! It’s Christmas Eve in turn-of-the-century Pittsburgh when a mysterious gift sparks a wondrous adventure. Journey to a Land of Enchantment filled with swirling snowflakes, waltzing flowers, and exciting dances set to Tchaikovsky’s glorious score. Five lavish scenes, dozens of dancers, and over 150 costumes make this one of Pittsburgh’s most cherished holiday traditions.

What makes it “sensory-friendly?” These performances feature a friendly, supportive environment for families with a loved one with special needs. Adaptations to the performance are slight, including:

> lower sound levels
> elimination of potentially startling special effects and lighting
> house lights on at about 20%
