Tonight marks a very big night for Emily and me. We are having a girls’ night out and we’re hitting up the Boston Opera House to see the opening night production of The Nutcracker! I haven’t been to the Nutcracker in years – I actually can’t even remember the last time I went to any ballet! We are both so very excited and I’m eager to see it through her eyes too! The Boston Ballet’s production of The Nutcracker is always a holiday favorite and it’s sure to put us both in the Christmas spirit starting tonight!
I danced in Jose Mateo’s production of The Nutcracker when I was in sixth grade and I remember all of it so fondly – the try-outs, the rehearsals, the costumes, the choreography. I was a toy soldier and I’ve told Emily about it thousands of times. There’s nothing quite like the magic of The Nutcracker and for me to have a daughter who is just so taken with dance makes it all the more special for the two of us tonight.
And here are some images that are sure to give me the goosebumps tonight:
