Boston Ballet presents The Nutcracker

Boston Ballet NutcrackerNext Friday The Boston Ballet is opening night for The Nutcracker. Each year I like to give this classic ballet a plug, because the entire experience from walking into the beautifully decorated Boston Opera House to watching the Boston Ballet’s production puts me in such a wonderful mood. It is something I wish everyone would experience.

Consider picking up tickets for a show and making an evening of going to the ballet with friends or someone special. It makes for an excellent date night. Boston Ballet The Nutcracker at the Opera House
