Night at The Nutcracker

Last night, Kyle came over, handed me a folded up note and said, "Here's your agenda tomorrow! Don't you want to read it?" As I made my way down the list, nothing looked too different until I realized he said to 'wear something nice', to 'meet downtown for dinner' and then....'arrive at Warner Theater for The Nutcracker!!!' I hadn't been to The Nutcracker or even a ballet in far too long. At first I was in shock but then, as it sank in, I realized we would actually be going and that I would be in heaven the whole time. I grew up dancing and was able to be in several versions of The Nutcracker including Ballet West's production. Tchaikovsky's music is ingrained in me, as is the choreography to this amazing performance. All I could think was, "Kyle knows me....and he is the best husband ever!"

The agenda with Kyle's architecture lettering that I love so much. 

After a delicious dinner at Chef Geoff's,we ran across the street to get ready to see the show. 

The Warner Theatre's ceiling reminded me of Phantom of the Opera.

I loved the set including the panels off to the side. What was unique about this production, is that it is set in 1882 Georgetown, with ties to Washington D.C. including cherry blossoms and George Washington as the nutcracker. 

Had to get a picture with the over sized nutcracker. 

Obligatory program on lap picture.

Another gem by the nutcracker and we are Christmas colored through and through. Thank you Kyle for a wonderful evening and amazing early Christmas present!
