3 p.m. Robinson Center Music Hall. $79.

It's time once more for one of the most enduring works in the history of ballet: Tchaikovsky's "The Nutcracker." According to a press release, the Moscow Ballet's current touring production promises to take the "150-year Nutcracker tradition to a new level incorporating props, costumes, and a new level of dramatic depth."

Among the new bells and whistles: a "Magic Table" for Uncle Drosselmeyer; a 5-foot pile of "teetering presents" for the Christmas party scene; and two 6-foot "Matryoshka Dolls," which reveal Drosselmeyer's magic dolls for party guests. Sounds like a Nutcracker-y good time to get everyone in the holiday spirit.

  • Cats and dogs

    I've always been leery of people who dislike animals. To my wife and me, a house without dog hair in the corners and a cat perched on the windowsill is as barren as a highway rest stop. We're down to three dogs and two cats, the smallest menagerie we've had for years.
