A true Boston story, local dance legend Tony Williams reimagined the classic holiday tale to become a Boston inner-city story with a neon-buzz, blending the rhythms of Duke Ellington with the classical music of Tchaikovsky. Annually, 150 performers – including professional ballet dancers – take the stage to showcase a broad diversity of dance forms celebrating multicultural Boston. Join heroine Clarice as she explores iconic Boston scenes such as Make Way for Ducklings, Top of the Hub, Chinatown, and the Boston Public Garden. The delightful story continues by following the magical journey of Clarice and her Nutcracker guide through classical ballet, tap, hip-hop, jazz, flamenco, and more. "You really don’t get more "original" than Williams’ version of The Nutcracker that features people who reflect the increasingly diverse neighborhoods of Boston and, frankly, many other metro areas in the United States." — The Boston Globe There will be a Sensory Friendly performance on Wednesday, December 27 at 7:30pm. This performance is ideal for families with autism and for families with very young children. [less-]
