Riffing on The Wizard of Oz but based in Chinese folklore, Where the Mountain Meets the Moon is a magical adventure with a lot of heart. It's the story of Minli, the daughter of poor farmers who barely scrape by. Inspired by her father's tales and a magic goldfish, Minli sets off to find the Old Man of the Moon and learn the secret of good fortune. Along the way she encounters royalty, dragons and fantastic stories, and through them she learns what good fortune really means. Based on the 2010 Newbery Honors book, Where the Mountain Meets the Moon is a beautifully-told fantasy that will keep kids entranced as they join Minli on her journey. Learn More

What a great twist on it's classical version! From hip hop to street dancing, a little jazz, ballet of course and even some a cappelle singing, the colorful and entertaining Urban Nutcracker is sure to entertain the entire family!
While it is a great show, dont expect to see world class ballet. It is though, a good dance performance. I definitively recommend it to everyone.

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.
