It’s been too many years since I’ve seen Atlanta Ballet’s The Nutcracker. Mother and Daddy-O took me for the first time in college, and it’s been at least fifteen years since seeing the quintessential holiday ballet performed by Atlanta Ballet at the historic Fox Theater so it went on my 40×41 bucket list and was checked off this weekend. (Although we’ve decided this must become an annual tradition for our family full of ballerinas!)
There might not be a more magical venue than Atlanta’s Fox Theater. It is always such a treat to attend a show here.
I snapped this picture of the absolutely stunning scenery. Every single part of the show was magical and perfect. The ballerinas, the symphony, the choir, the sets, the costumes, the snow… even the entertaining touches added by director John McFall that kept the age old show fresh and new.
Just one more pic from the final bow. We sat right in front on the balcony – amazing seats with a perfect view!
CeeCee is not yet three, but already adores ballet. She sat as quiet as a mouse through the ENTIRE show. Her eyes were just wide with delight the entire time. Mother and I gave her the precious Nutcracker dolls to remember her first show by.
Afterwards we met up with the guys for a divine dinner at Houston’s. Another Atlanta fave.
It was really just the best day spent with Sister, Mother and little CeeCee. I can’t wait to see her on stage on day.
