I think I talk about my love for The Nutcracker every year on this blog, so of course this year is no exception. To make a long story short; The Nutcracker ballet is one of my all time favorite things about Christmastime, and I make an effort to listen to it all season long, and catch it in person every chance I get. Unfortunately, I haven't had time to fit the ballet into my plans this December, so I thought I'd find it on YouTube, and share it here, in case anyone else wants to add a little whimsy to their Sunday.
This particular video is from the Mariinsky Theatre in St Petersburg, December 2012. It's beautiful. Enjoy!
