Kick off the holiday season with Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens and Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre (PBT) as they bring the magic of The Nutcracker to Phipps’ historic glasshouse on Fri., Nov. 18, for Poinsettias and Pointe Shoes. Complete with a sneak peek of Phipps’ Winter Flower Show and Light Garden, this family-friendly event joins two beloved holiday traditions under one roof.

Guests will see classic vignettes from Terrence S. Orr's The Nutcracker, including the "Dance of the Sugarplum Fairy" and “Waltz of the Flowers,” performed by talented pre-professional dancers from PBT School. After the show, visitors can stick around for a meet-and-greet session and photo opportunity with the dancers before exploring the Conservatory for a preview of some of the colorful poinsettias, glowing evergreens and festive displays of Phipps’ Winter Flower Show and Light Garden. Winter Flower Show and Light Garden officially opens Fri., Nov. 25.

Phipps and PBT will offer three sessions of Poinsettias and Pointe Shoes with performances at 4:30, 6 and 7:30 p.m.
