The Nutcracker San Antonio Symphony and Ballet San Antonio ~ #EnterToWin Tickets

San Antonio Symphony and Ballet San Antonio will perform a holiday favorite, THE NUTCRACKER, together at the Majestic Theater for the fourth consecutive season. Thanks to our friends at the San Antonio Symphony we have a family four pack to give away for one of our readers.


It is a classic holiday treat for families everywhere. In THE NUTCRACKER, a little girl receives a beautiful nutcracker from her god-father, a toy-maker, but out of jealousy, her brother breaks the nutcracker. The toy maker fixes the nutcracker and it is laid to rest under her Christmas tree. After the party is over and guests are gone, Clara runs downstairs to check on her nutcracker and falls asleep. She dreams of the toys coming to life and a battle between the toys and large mice. After the toys are safe, the nutcracker turns in to a prince and takes Clara through the Land of Snowflakes to the magical Kingdom of Sweets where they dance the night away.the-nutcracker-san-antonio-sugar plum
