The PNB costume shop has been hard at work creating the amazing costumes you’ve seen so far in our Digital Season. And somehow they have also found the time to lovingly sew masks too!

You can never have enough ornaments! Exclusive ornaments, based on PNB’s production and Ian Falconer’s drawings. Wooden nutcrackers in traditional colors, pastels and metallics. Multiple interpretations of Clara, the Mouse King, the Sugar Plum Fairy, Drosselmeyer and other characters. And so many ballerinas!
