I’ll never forget my first ballet, when I brought my niece to watch her first as well. It was for Goh Ballet’s The Nutcracker in 2012. Gathering under the marquee with tickets in hand, cheeks rosy red from the cold and coats buttoned to our chins, we entered the theatre with a sense of wonder. By the end of the first act we were both enchanted by the performance.
If you would like to experience this magical holiday show for yourself, I have a pair of tickets to give away to the performance at 7:30pm on Sunday, December 17, 2017. Here’s how you can enter to win:
