It's really starting to feel like Christmas around here! The decorations are all up, hot chocolate has been drunk, and we went to see the Moscow Ballet's Great Russian Nutcracker.
A few years ago I dragged took my husband to see a ballet and he pretty much decided it wasn't his thing. Musicals he could do, ballets are something entirely different. I, on the other hand, loooooove the ballet. Somehow, he decided to give ballet another chance and I convinced him to come with me to see the Nutcracker this weekend. The show was beautiful. They work with local dance studios and gave young Memphis ballerinas the opportunity to dance on stage with professional Russian ballerinas. I am sure that was an experience they will never forget.
The show was absolutely stunning. The costumes were spectacular and the performance was breathtaking. There were even some acrobatics thrown in that left my husband's jaw on the floor. It was the perfect evening to begin the holiday season. Check here to see if the Great Russian Nutcracker will be in your city!
