Carolina Ballet's Nutcracker is a long-running family tradition for my family (thanks to my in-laws who get us tickets every year).
The company's performance is truly magical - with actual illusions created by a renowned magician, along with some gorgeous costumes and beautiful performances. From the time my younger child was two, both of my kids have been absolutely mesmerized by the performance and look forward to it every Christmas.
Carolina Ballet's Nutcracker starts Dec. 9 at the Durham Performing Arts Center before it moves to the Duke Energy Center for Performing Arts in Raleigh on Dec. 16.
