The Nutcracker 2015 – Boston Ballet

One of my very favorite traditions of the holiday season is going to the Nutcracker with my daughter.

We get all dolled up, have a nice dinner out and go to the Ballet. I never want it to end. The evening, or the tradition. I know it will some day soon, she is getting so big. Already seven and becoming smarter and stronger every day. So I soak it all in.

The way she looks at the city, the theater, the dancers, the sets, the costumes, and me. The way her eyes light up when she sees the tree grow, how she giggles at the black sheep and the bear, the sound of her gasp as the men jump SO high, seeing her sit at the edge of her seat as the prima ballerina skillfully stays on pointe.

Again the dancing was flawless, sets and costumes gorgeous, so much loveliness in one place.

The Nutcracker is a story of Christmas but also of childhood. The wonder and magic of both. I love that I get to be a part of it with my little girl every year.

The Nutcracker is being performed by the Boston Ballet through December 31st. You can purchase your tickets here.
