As the second step on my way to Christmas, I went to the Boston Ballet Yesterday Evening to see the Nutcracker. And I need to say that the preview of it was far below the magic of the actual performance!
It was so wonderful, the dancer and the decors perfectly transported us into the dream. I understand why it’s Boston number one holiday tradition. I felt like a 6 years old girl on Christmas night, fascinated by the troupe. Several children from the Boston Ballet’s school participated to the show, and it was definitely cute and incredibely managed. The performance was both timely with several funny notes that amazed the kids in the audience (including me) and timeless with the grown up dances.
My favorite part was the Waltz of the Snowflakes which was literally magic. I am a little bit sad not to have snow yet in Boston, even if I know that January is going to be. I just wished I had a white Christmas. The snowflake dance was enchanting, like a dream and the snow falling on the dancer, spinning like a music box.
