Urban Nutcracker

Presented by City Ballet of Boston
Boch Center Shubert Theatre 265 Tremont St , Boston

Tchaikovsky and Duke Ellington. Ballet and hip-hop. Urban Nutcracker is a classic holiday treat with an inner city twist!

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 Ruby as she explores iconic Boston scenes such as Make Way for Ducklings, the golden dome of the State House, Chinatown, and the Boston Public Garden. The delightful story continues by following the magical journey of Ruby and her Nutcracker guide through classical ballet, tap, hip hop, jazz, flamenco, and more.
