The choreography, sets, and costumes were new, at least to me. This was my family’s Christmas present from A’s mom: row F, seats 14 to 17. I haven’t seen The Nutcracker for years, not since I became a mom myself, and I’ve always wanted to take my children. It was magical. (Slightly less so for the hockey playing child who, nonetheless, got caught out in admitting how cute the little lambs were.)
I was enthralled.
