Nutcracker Magic
December 10,2009

Before their curtain call, Sugarplum fairies and dancing bears sneaked in a top secret appearance for 425 lucky guests at Boston Ballet's Nutcracker Magic, a special dinner and Nutcracker performance for corporate sponsors and their families. The Ritz hosted the event -- which raised $307,000 for the Boston Ballet -- warming the spirits of guests just enough to brave the cold and head to the Opera House to catch The Nutcracker.
