Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker Ballet – A Giveaway!

It dawned on me today that there’s only 39 more days until Christmas! This time of the year goes by so quickly and if I don’t remind myself to stop and enjoy the season, it flies right by me.

A Christmas tradition in my family is to see The Nutcracker ballet. The music, the costumes, the dancing…it just brings the season to light. And when that Christmas tree grows on stage and Clara dances with the Nutcracker Prince and snow falls to the ground….magic!

I was SO excited to hear that I don’t have to travel far to see this holiday classic this year. On Monday, December 3, 2012,  at 2:00 PM and 7:30 PM, Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker, performed by the Mariinsky Ballet Theatre,  is being brought to movie theaters nationwide by NCM Fathom Events and More2Screen.

This is the first time ever it has been shown in select theater locations, and there are several locations in and around Houston including Cinemark 19 in Katy, Cinemark 18 in Webster, Cinemark in Spring, Cinemark 13 in Cypress, Memorial City Mall, and Houston Marq*E, so don’t miss your chance to see this timeless class in Real D 3D.

To purchase tickets before they sell out, visit the Fathom Events website.
