We go every Christmas to see the Richmond Ballet Nutcracker. I love the show. My mom started taking me when I was about age 12 and I love taking my now 6yr old. It's been a yearly family tradition and they never disappoint.

This lovely venue in downtown Richmond is a wonderful place for opera lovers; the adjacent Gottwald Theater is an intimate space for my favorite theatrical group, Quill Theater. Nice restaurants within walking distance, parking lot available.

I've been there only once but it made a big impression. It's absolutely beautiful! Accoustics is wonderful too. So it makes for the great venue for many shows.
