The Christmas season is almost here and that means that there will be numerous performances of The Nutcracker in town. Ballet San Antonio http://balletsanantonio.org will be performing the holiday classic at the Majestic Theatre http://majesticempire.com starting next week.
The Nutcracker is a two act ballet about a German girl who dreams of a Nutcracker Prince and a battle against a Mouse King with seven heads.
