'Tis the season to give in to sentimentality and accept that tried-and-true traditions like Tchaikovsky's The Nutcracker are as integral to the Christmas season as heartburn and rampant consumerism. Catch the Moscow Classical Ballet's all-ages performance of the candy-colored stage classic this weekend in West Palm Beach.
The Nutcracker will be performed Thursday and Friday at 8 p.m. Saturday shows are at 2 and 8 p.m. Performances are in the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts, located at 701 Okeechobee Blvd. in West Palm Beach. Tickets cost $25 to $68. Call 561-832-7469, or visit kravis.org.
