The Houston Ballet has several performances in December. When the children were younger it was an annual event for us.

Ditto on the Phantom. I saw it in Toronto several years ago. When the cassette tape finally got eaten, I replaced it with the CD. Just listening to it brings back the memories of the production.

The Seattle Symphony and Pacific Northwest Ballet have done the Nutcracker around Christmas every year for the last 20 couple years. I've seen it a couple of time during that time.

Mrs qmax & I do at least one stage production a year. Last one was Cabaret, last April. Was every bit as well done as anything we have seen in London.

We're that way with "Wicked." We listen to the music all the time.

If you google Moscow Ballet Tickets, you can scroll down to the bottom of the home page and click on your state to find out when they will be performing in a town close to you and with dates and times of the performance.

You can also google Nutcracker and your state name to find other performances close to you.

Denver has several each year. This was a regular part of the Christmas tradition for us also. Be sure to get your tickets early though wherever you decide to go.

I saw it performed by the Skyline elementry "company" last year. I may be a little biased, but I thought it was brilliant!!

Stacy, I took 14 years of classical ballet, pointe, tap, jazz and modern dance. I have even choreographed and danced to the Russian Dance. If you let me know which ballet company is coming to your area, I will do my best to let you know whether it is a good company or not. Sadly, we no longer have our Cleveland Ballet Company. It was excellent. Some corps are better than others.

May I also suggest that you stay away from the front rows--you need some perspective or all you will see is feet. You want to be in the middle of the theatre if you can.

I've seen the Cincinnati Ballet's production of Nutcracker several times. My husband refuses to see it again - but I love going to see it, it puts me in the Christmas mood. Who can resist the Dance of the Sugarplum Fairies?!
