ALL WEEKEND

PBT's visual feast

Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre opens its 16th season of artistic director Terrence Orr's Pittsburgh-flavored "Nutcracker" at Benedum Center, Downtown.

The ballet, inspired by E.T.A. Hoffmann's whimsical tale of a young girl's favorite toy coming to life, is a festive visual feast, complete with 150 colorful costumes, a growing Christmas tree, magic tricks, striking sets and falling snow with a scenic city view from atop Mount Washington. Also, keep your eyes peeled for local references and landmarks sprinkled throughout the show, such as the iconic Downtown Kaufmann's clock and an old Heinz delivery truck. The ballet is danced to a Tchaikovsky score.

Beginning Friday, there will be 24 performances through Dec. 27. At 2 p.m. Dec. 26, there will be a sensory friendly performance adapted for patrons with special needs. For a full list of show times and to purchase tickets, go to www.pbt.org/nutcracker, call 412-456-6666 or visit the Box Office at Theater Square in the Cultural District. Tickets start at $28.
