There is a rapture on the lonely shore;
There is society, where none intrudes.
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more...

-Lord Byron

Moscow Ballet's Great Russian Nutcracker

Limited tickets available.

This type of marketing usually doesn't work on me, but for whatever reason, seeing the words "Moscow Ballet's Great Russian Nutcracker" drew me inexplicably towards purchasing a ticket.

And as a grand finale to the Christmas season, it was quite the pinnacle.
The familiar music became altogether something new under the direction and artistry of it's Russian themes.
Each scene held it's own magical power, and the wonderment of a child captured me into a spell of wonderment. A perfect night in the Valley of the Sun to lead me into the Christmas weekend as I ready to return home.

Ouroboros

September the fourteenth, two thousand and sixteen.

7:45 PM.

Ray walks out onto the stage, guitar in hand, and starts to sing a four song acoustic set that puts chills on everyone's skin.
He then brings out the band, and sings his new album in it's entirety.
He then ends with audience requests, creating a magical night that I'll never forget.
