A few weeks ago I needed to get in to the Christmas feeling and what is the quickest and most guaranteed if somewhat expensive way to do that? The Nutcracker! Today we went to the Stockholm opera and saw it. It was beautiful and lovely and fun and rat kings and snowflakes and flowers who waltz and everything one could possibly wish.
Not to mention the opera itself is just amazingly pretty. We are trying to make this an annual December tradition even though we’ve missed last year. I also love that there are so many kids on the matines, they are quite unpredictable. Sometimes they are mesmerised and sometimes they are bored and they are not afraid to show it. We have also decided that we probably need more ballet in our lives. Maybe that could be a new year’s resolution?
