Who doesn’t love the the music from the beloved George Balanchine’s Ballet The Nutcracker with music by Tchaikovsky. We love this beautiful ballet from the waltz of the snowflakes, the sugar plum fairies to the Mouse King and Clara and her Nutcracker Prince!
The Nutcracker kicks off the holiday season, in our opinion, and we look forward to purchasing our tickets to see a performance.
This beautiful ballet is truly one of our favorites and always makes us smile. This is one of those holiday shows you simply should not miss!
How about a casual brunch and a matinee? The #SoooBoca squad has gone many times for the matinee in particular and we make an afternoon out of it.
One of the many benefits of living in South Florida during the holidays (in addition to the absolutely fabulous weather) is the fact that we are in close proximity to venues dedicated to the performing arts; many of which are hosting dance companies performing The Nutcracker.
