The heart is a child …

… awakening to the magic of the season. Light the fire in a child’s heart (and spark your own childhood wonder) with this beloved trip into a land where toy soldiers fight rat armies, snowflakes come dancing to life and the sugarplum fairy presides over it all with the wave of a wand. Each year George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker sets the season a-sparkle, creating memories your family will cherish forever.
