While the NBofC didn't premiere The Nutcracker until 1952, this year actually marks the 120th anniversary of the ballet itself, since its very first performance in 1892, in St. Petersburg, Russia. It's a timeless classic that I hope to enjoy for years to come. I love the music, the costumes, and the elegance of each dancer, and can't wait to witness it all again this year.
Have you gone to see The Nutcracker Ballet? I'd love to see all the different performance around the world!
