What happens when a bunch of classically trained musicians, dancers and actors decide to put on a late-night dance-club show? You get something like AcousticaElectronica, where classical collides with electronic to create an all-new visual and aural spectacle. It starts with live musicians playing the work of established and up-and-coming composers, joined onstage by The WIG, a New York-based DJ. The dancers bring in their blend of ballet, jazz and modern movement, while the aerialists wow the audience with their artistic fly-overs. With a lower mezzanine ticket, you can take in the show from an exclusive, raised dance-floor area, with standing cocktail tables and your own server so you can skip the bar lines. This toUch performance art production also features pre- and post-show sets from a number of Boston's hottest DJs. Learn More

BalletROX and WFT present the 10th Anniversary Season of Tony Williams’ electric Urban Nutcracker.
Ballet master Tony Williams celebrates the 10th annual presentation of his re-imagining of Tchaikovsky’s classic. Urban Nutcracker captures the essence of a multicultural blending of sound and movement with its interpretation of the 19th century fairy tale classic. Urban Nutcracker’s cast of professional dancers and richly talented and diverse youth of Boston seamlessly combine ballet, swing, hip-hop, step and urban tap with the classical score of Tchaikovsky and the unforgettable beat of Duke Ellington.
