Boston Ballet: The Nutcracker

Boston Ballet The Nutcracker at the Opera HouseThis past weekend I attended the Boston Ballet’s annual production of The Nutcracker at the Boston Opera House theater.

Attending The Nutcracker Thanksgiving weekend is quickly becoming one of my favorite holiday traditions, because the Opera House is richly decorated, the music is beautiful and the ballet is a feast for the eyes – just look at the handsome Nutcracker Prince to see what I mean.  Even Ebenezer Scrooge would leave the Boston Ballet production with a smile on his face.

The Nutcracker is a great date night suggestion or fun night out with friends. Even if you don’t always appreciate or understand ballet, I’m willing to bet more than a few of you will leave with a bit of a crush on the Boston Ballet’s principal dancer, Paulo Arrais, who plays the Nutcracker Prince.

Performances run through the end of the year. Tickets for The Nutcracker start at $35.00 and can be purchased online here, bostonballet.org/nutcracker.
