The Nutcracker at the Boston Ballet

“The nutcracker sits under the holiday tree, a guardian of childhood stories. Feed him walnuts and he will crack open a tale…”
― Vera Nazarian, The Perpetual Calendar of Inspiration

As a child my favorite movie, and the first one I remember watching, was “Barbie in the Nutcracker”. The bewitching music, costumes, and story of love, inspiration, and dreams all appealed to me from a young age. The magic has not rubbed off with time. In fact, my appreciation has just grown deeper and love more tender. Daniel and I watched the Nutcracker together on Friday at the Boston Ballet. I must admit I shed a few tears during Tchaikovsky’s “Pas De Deux,” the dance between the Sugar Plum Fairy and Prince Coqueluch. The Nutcracker will forever remain my favorite ballet, not only because of the beautiful music and dancing, but the memories it evokes in me. It is childhood, it is christmas, it is everything… On that note I want to wish everyone an amazing holiday filled with laughter, love, and happiness.
