The Nutcracker Ballet

Spent an elegant night at the ballet with Mam, having bought her tickets to see Northern Ballet’s The Nutcracker for her birthday. The Tchaikovsky score is beautiful and the dancers were amazing. I have to admit that it was Martha Leebolt, dancing the role of the Sugar Plum Fairy, who stole the show. It was a gorgeous night and now I’m feeling more festive than ever…

    oh my… this is just gorgeous. I wish my husband liked ballet or opera or even theater. I oh so miss it, and you bet your ass I'd dress up with gloves and all.

    Hello! I found my way here through Sarah's blog (Almost Delightful). My name's Jen. I blog on A Gypsy's Journal. I've been checking out a few of your posts. I had to comment on a few of these, starting with this one, because I love the Nutcracker! I saw this a few years back, with a friend of mine (also named Jen). It was so good!
