The Nutcracker at the Boston Ballet
Here we are in December! The season of twinkly white lights, cookies with icing, and holiday spirit. The Nutcracker is one of our favorite Boston Ballet performances. In recent years we rediscovered it, and I have to admit that I enjoy it even more as an adult! The sets and costumes are gorgeous, and of course the dancing and the music are beautiful. I love the comedic elements from the bear and the mouse king. Plus, seeing anything at The Boston Opera House is a treat, and a little glass of prosecco at intermission doesn’t hurt!
Performances for the season have already begun, and extend through December 31. Find out more on the Boston Ballet website.
