Ballet San Antonio’s back with a beloved Christmas favorite, Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker. Even the least-cultured among us will recognize the ballet’s musical selections about sugar plums, snowflakes and princes, which will be played live by the San Antonio Symphony. Joining forces with Ballet SA’s professional corps of dancers is a cast of San Antonio area children, who will showcase the city’s emerging local talent. Plus, on December 4th you can take part in a special tea party performance while surrounded by the famous winter wonderland — a perfect way to kindle Christmas cheer.
