There are many things I love about living in the city and one of those things is the entire Christmas season. A special time of year turns completely magical for Boston: snow covered streets, ice skating at the Frog Pond followed by hot chocolate, Christmas tree lit up at the Boston Common and The Boston Ballet performing The Nutcracker at The Boston Opera House.
This is the second year I have taken Coraline to see The Nutcracker performed by The Boston Ballet. Coraline is now 4 and is in her second year of ballet classes. I definitely noticed a change in her level of awe and wonder this year.
In 2012 the costumes and sets were totally redone, so if you have seen The Nutcracker in a few years, it's now a totally new experience.
There is something totally magical about entering the beautiful Boston Opera House and seeing all the small people dressed in their Christmas best, smiles all around.
Tickets to the Boston Ballet Nutcracker are on sale now, the show runs thigh December 26. What am amazing gift to give the children in your life, an experience they will remember forever.
Buy they seemingly expensive Nutcracker cookie from concession, they are amazing.
