Enter to Win a Pair of Tickets to Boston Ballet’s Nutcracker

The Nutcracker is a story of battle, fantasy, sugary treats, Christmas gifts, wizardry, snowy scenes, and not only the magic of the holidays but also the magic of childhood.  It’s not just for dance lovers, it’s most definitely not just for girls or little dancers to enjoy.  Seeing a full snow flurry on stage indoors is like seeing the first snowfall of your life.  The dramatic battle between the soldiers and the mice is something has everyone on the edge of their seat.
