First. A little back story. When I was little, I idolized the ballerinas. I saw a video of The Nutcracker once at Christmas time and it was over. From then on, I wanted to be a Sugar Plum Princess….desperately.
Sadly, I never became a ballerina. Even more sad, I never got to see The Nutcracker in person.
Then one day, I got this text from Dustin. (And yes, we are that couple. I was in his phone as Boss Lady and he was Boss Man. When you guys own a company together….some days you fight over who gets to be the boss! haha)
Well, surprise!! He DID get me Nutcracker tickets!! We had amazing seats and I even got surprised with a giant Nutcracker to bring home.
And that is the story of how I became the happiest girl in the world.
Last year I was so excited to see the Nutcracker in person and this year, I’m so excited to see The Nutcracker and the Four Realms! (And the ballet again!)
All Clara (Mackenzie Foy) wants is a key – a one-of-a-kind key that will unlock a box that holds a priceless gift. A golden thread, presented to her at godfather Drosselmeyer’s (Morgan Freeman) annual holiday party, leads her to the coveted key—which promptly disappears into a strange and mysterious parallel world. It’s there that Clara encounters a soldier named Phillip (Jayden Fowora-Knight), a gang of mice and the regents who preside over three Realms: Land of Snowflakes, Land of Flowers and Land of Sweets. Clara and Phillip must brave the ominous Fourth Realm, home to the tyrant Mother Ginger (Helen Mirren), to retrieve Clara’s key and hopefully return harmony to the unstable world. Starring Keira Knightley as the Sugar Plum Fairy, Disney’s new holiday feature film “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms” is directed by Lasse Hallström and Joe Johnston, and inspired by E.T.A. Hoffmann’s classic tale.
