Ahhh, The Nutcracker. It's the quintessential holiday experience. The lights dim, the orchestra begins the overture and the audience is transported to a magical world where a nutcracker comes to life and fights with the king of the mice, and the Sugarplum Fairy and sweets from around the world dance and twirl. Never fails to put me in the holiday spirit when I hear music from The Nutcracker ballet... dum dum da dum da dum da dum dum dum da daaa dum. (You know it. Go ahead and hum along. I've been doing it all day!)
Best wishes for a very Merry Christmas!
