win nutcracker tickets! [closed]

nutcracker2

The winner is Elizabeth Hausmann – congratulations!

A week ago, I was lucky enough to be invited to the Boston Ballet’s magical performance of The Nutcracker (check me out backstage here!). When I was little, my mom and I would go see the Nutcracker every year before Christmas – and just hearing the music brings back such happy memories. In 2012, the costumes and set were redesigned, so I was definitely excited to see the changes (especially when I heard over 200,000 jewels were hand sewn onto the dancers’ costumes…). And the show was seriously beautiful – so sparkly and inspiring. My boyfriend Kevin even enjoyed it – we were both so impressed by the unbelievable talent and athleticism of the dancers (insane). Thanks to the generosity of the Boston Ballet, I’m hosting a giveaway for two Nutcracker tickets! The show is at the Boston Opera House on Thursday, December 18th, 7:30pm (just a few days away!) and I’ll be contacting the winner on Wednesday. Don’t miss out on this amazing experience – enter below!
