The Nutcracker ballet

Last Thursday we went to the Nutcracker ballet at the Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts by Louisville Ballet and Louisville Orchestra. We thought the orchestra delivered a commendable performance and the ballet was much better than average. The stage set was quite impressive and the magic tricks performed by Uncle Dresselmeyer were surprisingly sophisticated. Overall, we thought the magic tricks and stage setting were a little better executed than the synchronization of the baller dancers. The orchestral music was truly wonderful throughout.

Last year, we enjoyed watching the George Balanchine’s Nutcracker ballet by the New York City Baller on Youtube. For those of you who haven’t heard of the Nutcracker ballet, here it is:

About David and Lam

A smitten couple and loving parents in our early 40s. We have lived in 3 different countries together. We dream of living in a fourth country together after our children grow up. We love long walks in the woods, climbing mountains, boating, traveling, reading, and being together. Both David and Lam are old souls who love quietness and meaningful conversations in which we ponder the truth and mysteries of life as well as discuss philosophical and ethical matters. We especially like to enjoy the small pleasures of daily life.
