How to see the PNB Nutcracker without breaking the bank

Maurice Sendak's Seattle Nutcracker - Pacific Northwest Ballet. Really cool Sendak-style set - peacock costume and snow dance are amazing. They abridge the story in some ways though and take out the scene with Mother Ginger and her skirt full of little ballerinas.
