A Christmas Classic ~ The Nutcracker

Sunday afternoon we enjoyed a wonderful Christmas Classic ~ The Nutcracker Ballet. Sharon and Larry treated her parents and I to this beautiful ballet performed by the National Ballet of Canada in Toronto. It was an afternoon of awe and wonder as the dancers leapt across the stage and Tchaikovsky's beautiful music floated throughout the theatre encompassing all who were there. It is such familiar music and so moving!

It was such a treat to realize that there is still a place where people dress up...the ballet! There were so many children there and they thoroughly enjoyed it. It was amazing to see how the performance grasped the attention of even the little ones that were there. Many appeared to be as young as 4 or 5 years old yet there was so much happening that they watched in awe. What a treat to see the wonder in these little one's eyes! I'm looking forward to the day when Hannah and I will attend this beautiful Christmas Classic together!

It's easy to see how this beautiful performance can become an annual event for many!

  4. I haven't seen the Nutcracker in years... but it was a childhood dream of mine and I finally got to see it when I was in university. It is something to be experienced and loved! Glad you had a chance to see it! You'll be humming and dancing for days...

  7. It's so funny that I see this today, I was thinking I haven't seen the Nutcracker since I was a kid and we should go. Maybe next year.
