I’ve been talking about going to see the Nutcracker ballet for several years and I finally got around to it last week. It’s not that I’m a big fan of ballet or anything like that, it’s just something I thought I should experience at least once. Aside from an excellent location; the hall had killer acoustics, the orchestra was amazing, and the sets and costumes were very well done. I even thought the dancers did a pretty good job; of course I wouldn’t know even if they messed up so I guess that’s not saying much. All in all it wasn’t a bad experience, and I don’t feel it was a waste of either my time or money. Having said that, I doubt I’ll go see a ballet again. It’s just not my thing.
