Enjoy the top shows coming to San Antonio this festive season like Elton John, Paula Abdul, Celtic Thunder, Trans Siberian Orchestra, Mannheim Steamroller, and Il Divo. Then get outdoors for the Rock ‘n Roll Marathon; slow down the pace at the Riverwalk among the luminaries; be awestruck by fantastic performances of The Nutcracker by Moscow Ballet and San Antonio Ballet, then rev up again for the big New Year’s Eve bash in downtown San Antonio. What a month!
About: For one night only the Moscow Ballet comes to town with world-class dancers, spectacular sets, and beautiful costuming to bring the classic tale to life onstage with the rat king, dancing snowflakes, and the Sugar Plum Fairy ready to transport you on a magical mystical adventure. Tchaikovsky’s score is brought to life with larger than-life-puppets, a growing Christmas tree and life-sized Matryoshka Dolls.
When: December 26 at 7:00 pm and December 27 at 3:00 pm and 7:00 pm.
Cost: From $32.
