"The timeless Nutcracker Ballet has become an annual holiday tradition for our family,
and for a good reason! As an audience member, it is exhilarating watching the story being told
and coming alive through the dancers. The Nutcracker feels almost magical as if you’ve been
transported away to an enchanted land, where you are surrounded by beauty. While you are
hearing the brilliant, ornate music composed by Tchaikovsky, you are also watching breathtaking
and graceful dancing on the stage."
