Opus is thrilled to announce our collaboration with Bellingham Arts Academy for Youth (BAAY) on a brand new Nutcracker, coming to Mount Baker Theatre in December of 2018. Brooke Evans (Opus Artistic Director) and Ian Bivins (BAAY Executive Director) shared the news during Opus' Winter White 2017 and were met with huge amounts of enthusiasm!
*** All Opus ballet and combo students enrolled for the fall 2018 semester are eligible to participate in the Nutcracker.***
We are very excited about this collaboration between the two schools. There is so much that can be learned from one another as we work together on this adventure. BAAY brings such joy, creativity and community to every project they work on, we cannot wait to get started!
