Opulent Couturier Favorite Things '11 - Visions of sugar plums...

This Christmas I started a new tradition, I attended the Nashville Ballet's production of The Nutcracker & I LOVED IT!  I attended the last show on Sunday at TPAC  with a good friend & I think we attended for different reasons, mine being set design & theatrics and lets just say I was mesmerized by it all.  I had dreams of the green fabric draping in Act 2.....  Loved the Tennessee connections throughout the set & the costume design was pure genius.  My favorite part was definitely the dance of the sugar plum fairy.

The dancers were amazing, ballerina's have the greatest posture, poise & grace.  I left the show saying that my future children will take ballet & that speaks volumes!  Speaking of children there were over 150 youth ballerina's and they were simply adorable.  The little lambs....LOVE them!  

I was so inspired I wanted to share some beautiful images of ballerina's & also more information about the Nashville Ballet.   Next Christmas I encourage you to support your local arts scene & here in Nashville especially the Nashville Ballet.  It was a great experience & now one of my new OC Favorite Things!!
