Tony Williams’ Urban Nutcracker, Boston’s original holiday classic, is back for its 15th season and packed with more magic for the whole family.
Urban Nutcracker puts a modern spin on the 19th Century fairy tale and transports the audience to an enchanted world not unlike their own. Say hello to Clarice & co…you’ve entered the world of the Urban Nutcracker. Strains of Duke Ellington dovetails with the buzz of neon driven by the heartbeat of Tchaikovsky. You could say it is a fusion of modern, multicultural and classical dance…but it’s more! It’s an organic interpretation brought about by a unifying of cultures. This is how art succeeds. This is why classic ballet, urban tap, hip hop, swing, flamenco, step and jazz blend into something special.
