The Nutcracker at the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts

Last Friday we were able to see the final dress rehearsal of The Nutcracker before it opened to the public on Saturday. We had the most amazing seats and the whole family agrees that the only way to see the ballet is from box seats. The view is just spectacular!

During intermission the little sheep came out to meet their fans, they were just wonderful on stage. 

Another Christmas, another Brooks Brothers bow tie. 

Mom and dad enjoying the quite intermission.

This is the "I'm a teenager, please stop taking photos of me" face.

The show was nothing short of perfection and the loud applause from the crowd let the dancers know they were ready for opening night!

The dancing was perfect and the scenery and costumes were breathtaking. My favorite part is the Waltz of the Snowflakes, I read on their website they release 10 pounds of paper "snow flakes" each night. 

Each guest was given a commemorative poster with the performances date on it. I plan on framing the poster and hanging it up during each Christmas season. 

The Nutcracker has performances scheduled for the next three weeks with some dates still available. It's a great holiday tradition for the young and young at heart!
