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.

        We acknowledge that Whatcom County is located on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples. They cared for the lands that included what we’d call the Puget Sound region, Vancouver Island and British Columbia since time immemorial. This gives us the great obligation and opportunity to learn how to care for our surrounding areas and all the natural and human resources we require to live. We express our deepest respect and gratitude for our indigenous neighbors, the Lummi Nation and Nooksack Tribe, for their enduring care and protection of our shared lands and waterways.
