Last December, my youngest daughter and I had the best mother-daughter Christmas night together. We got dressed up (and bundled up!) and rode the metro to downtown DC to the historic Warner Theater where we watched The Washington Ballet’s Nutcracker. I am so excited to be returning to the Warner Theater this holiday season with my good friend for a fun girl’s night out. To top it off, I get to give away two additional tickets for a reader to see the show this season as well! Tickets were provided for myself and for the giveaway, but all thoughts are my own.
About Septime Webre’s The Nutcracker
This celebrated production has become DC’s perennial holiday favorite! Set in historic Georgetown with historical figures and whimsical touches. This sumptuous production showcases the grandeur of The Washington Ballet’s international roster of dancers and majestic Tchaikovsky score. Replete with swirling snowflakes, cherry blossoms and historic characters including George Washington as the Nutcracker and King George III as the menacing Rat King! Join us again with family and friends or start a new holiday tradition with your loved ones. Presented at both THEARC and downtown Warner Theatre.
Choreography: Septime Webre
Music: Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky
WHEN/WHERE: December 3 through December 27, 2015 at the Warner Theatre in Washington DC

When my daughter and I saw the production last year, we were thoroughly entertained and impressed by the Septime Webre’s version of the classic story. It’s the same Nutcracker we all love with a little Washington DC “flavor.” I can’t wait to see it again! I’m thinking this should be a yearly tradition…

I would love a chance to take my daughter to see the Nutcracker. We’ve only seen the movie and read the book. I think seeing it live would open a whole new adventurous door for her!
