This production of the Nutcracker was stunning. The set was so beautiful and the costumes were cheery and colorful. The time flew by, it was so enjoyable. The Washington Ballet Company are awesome.

Septime Webre's version of "The Nutcracker" is lush and gorgeous and magical and truly enchanting -- everything a performance of "The Nutcracker" should be (and too often is not). It's hard to imagine a more beautiful stage setting or...continued
