My local orchestra is puting on two christmas concerts this year. one is the full Nutcracker balet music by Tchaikovsky and other christmas favorites. The second concert is only Handel's Messiah the whole thing. I can only go to one of these which would you go to?

I also think I'd go with Händel's Messiah. It's always a "winner" to me. But then again, the Tchaikovsky Nutcracker isn't something you hear so often... But still... I'd choose the Messaih.
