If the dispute isn’t resolved in the next week, “The Nutcracker,” a holiday tradition for many local families, will be performed with recorded music instead of a live orchestra. “We are very hopeful we can find a solution and will be able to have our musicians play in the pit,” said symphony spokeswoman Annie Matlow. “Of course we would rather have our musicians play”/Chelsea Bannach, SR.

Question: How much would you pay to see "The Nutcracker" performed without live music?
