We have a winner of Patch's "Nutcracker Tradition" photo contest.
This picture of Kevin hanging his nutcracker ornament on the Christmas tree earned the Quinn family two tickets to the Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre's always-in-demand production of the classic story of Marie and her Nutcracker Prince.
Recognized as one of the most popular ballets of all time, "The Nutcracker" is a holiday classic based on the German tale written by E.T.A. Hoffmann and set to the iconic score of Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky.
Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre's production features more than 210 costumes, 190 performers—including more than 150 students, ages 7 and up—and turn-of-the-century Pittsburgh-themed set design.
Thanks to all who entered the contest.
