The holidays wouldn't be as sweet without the most popular seasonal ballet of all time - The Nutcracker. The combination of Tchaikovsky's tuneful music, charming storyline and dancing rodents is irresistable. So, be sure to make time on either Saturday, December 10 or Sunday, December 11 for a performance of Aspen Santa Fe Ballet's Nutcracker, complete with a cast of 60 dancers, actors and circus artists. Performances take place at the Aspen District Theater on the Aspen school campus on Maroon Creek Road. Ticket information at aspenshowtix.com.
