Who could forget Mikhail Baryshnikov performing the Nutcracker?
When I was growing up it seemed to be on PBS every year around this time.
Who could forget my cousin Diana Ferrante performing at Lincoln Center as a Sugarplum or as one of the rats? (Depending on the year ) I hold those memories close to my heart; it is exciting to be able to pick out someone you know and love who is wearing a rat costume.

I do not scan my own books because I do not want to break the spine so I have surf the web to share some of the better images I could find from this book.
