My mom and I and one of my bestest friends and her mom and sister all go the Nutcracker in the city every year too. I have done this with my mom since I was 5 years old and it wouldn't be the holidays without Tchaikovsky. I adore the music and the company. So, in the spirit of tradition, we will do it once again this year. I look forward to it!
Check out the San Francisco Ballet. They don't disappoint.
