a can’t-miss Christmas tradition

If there’s one holiday tradition the pandemic can’t take away, it’s seeing the dazzling Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker – only this year, you can watch from the best seat in the house: the couch, the floor, your bed, the kitchen table, on the toilet – hey! We won’t judge. Sit wherever you’d like! Presented by the Pablo Center at the Confluence, this year’s performance offers unique backstage glances at how the magic is made. “Hear it first-hand from world-class artists, designers, and the creators of this cherished production,” the description says. The performance is at 7pm Saturday, Dec. 19, and tickets start at  $24.99, with the ability to watch the performance through Perigon webcasting.
