How was your experience?
I cannot beleive that I have not seen a production of the Hard Nut before. I loved it. Best waltz of the snowflakes and opening party scene that I have ever seen. While the dancing was not (and maybe I was at on "off" performance), on par with the SF ballet or ABT, it was by far the most entertaining Nutcracker I have ever seen. It seemed as both the audience and the dancers were having a great time.
