The Nutcracker

Tonight I went to see The Nutcracker Ballet at Bass Performance Hall in Fort Worth, TX. I was skeptical going in, but I must say this: everyone should see The Nutcracker at least once in their lifetime. It was certainly an experience. The dancers were nimble and impressive. Ballet really is an art. But actually, I most enjoyed the music. The ballet was good too, but I would have enjoyed simply listening to the musicians just as much. For some reason, it made me think of Sigur Ros and the strings on their Takk album. Very enjoyable. Also, if you're in Fort Worth for an extended period of time, check out Bass Performance Hall. It is absolutely beautiful and a great place for entertainment.

That's all.
