The Comforting Nutcracker

The holidays make us stray, splurge, and sin — and why wouldn’t we, with the new year right around the corner? (New Year = fresh start; note there’s one week left.) But, hell, we've got a conscience too, so we offer you an event so cuddly-sweet it’ll put you right back on anyone’s goody-two-shoes list. And it'll place you directly on the well-beaten path too — this traditional, timeless classic was written in 1892. We present to you Tchaikovsky and his Nutcracker. Arts Ballet Theatre's production of The Nutcracker will take over Aventura. So get ready for magic and merriment — because that’s exactly what a fairy tale will bestow upon you.
