Last Saturday (December 5th, 2015) we (my 3 year old daughter & myself) had a fantastic opportunity to attend The Great Russian Nutcracker at the Orpheum Theater in beautiful downtown Minneapolis, MN . As I mentioned in an earlier post, it has been a lifelong dream of mine to attend the ballet, and I can now check it off my bucket list. We were able to get great tickets via US FAMILY Guide . US Family Guide lists events (as well as codes for getting discounted tickets) around the nation. Yay for great events, at a great price. The Nutcracker will be in Sioux Falls, SD Wednesday December 7th also, and last time I looked there were still tickets available!! Use the code SANTA to get a special discount on your tickets.
We had AMAZING seats. The theater was BEAUTIFUL. Throughout the production, We were surrounded by families starting or continuing a family Christmas tradition, creating memories to last a lifetime. During the production, my 3 year old daughter sat on my lap and I LOVED watching her face of amazement when the amazing dancers performed their phenomenal ballet moves.
The production included hundreds of different costumes, tall animal puppets, colorful backdrops with 3-D effects.
