It's kinda hard to believe that Christmas is coming since the weather has been so nice outside.
I love Christmas time because it means ugly sweater parties, drinking hot chocolate, decorating with lights, and (my favorite tradition) watching the Nutcracker!
Since it's my favorite, I have the opportunity to give away some tickets to my Utah friends to see this show in a movie theater nearby. Here's the details:
Tchaikovsky's The Nutcracker performed by the Mariinsky Ballet Theatre
Monday, December 3rd at 2:00pm and 7:30pm
One Day Only
Various theaters, purchase here.
The Russian Imperial Mariinsky Theatre was the original home to Pyotr Tchaikovsky's The Nutcracker in 1892, when it made its worldwide debut. Movie theater audiences will experience the marvelous talents of two of the Mariinsky Theatre's rising stars - Alina Somova as Clara (Masha in the original Russian ballet) and Vladimir Shklyarov as the Nutcracker. Conducted by Valery Gergiev, this timeless production of The Nutcracker opens with a Christmas Eve party and a young girl, Clara, being given a nutcracker doll by her godfather, Drosselmeyer. Later in the evening when Clara sleeps, she finds herself in the midst of the Nutcracker's battle against the Mouse King and his army of mice. Coming to Clara's aid, the Nutcracker is transformed into a Prince and journeys with her to an enchanted island where spectacular celebrations are held in their honor.
