I love The Nutcracker. I saw it a number of times when I was a kid because we went on a school field trips to see it. Most of the kids seemed to hate having to go, but I loved it. I’ve seen it intermittently over the years since then. The last time was in Boston when I was in college with my friend Erin’s mom, her sister, and her sister’s friend. Erin was obviously supposed to go with us as well, but wound up having to drive back to her school early to beat a big snow storm that was due to roll in resulting in me going with her family but without her. I’m excited that this year I finally got to see The Nutcracker again. My friend Alison and I went to see the Moscow Ballet’s production of it today. It was wonderful to see it again.
