Description

Anthony Williams brings his Urban Nutcracker to Wheelock Family Theatre. This holiday classic jump starts the traditional Ballet with inner city edginess and features the professional BalletRox dance company and over 80 local children. The Urban Nutcracker follows the story line of Hoffman’s original 19th century fairy tale but is set in contemporary Boston and fuses seasonal tradition with contemporary innovation. Ballet, swing, hip-hop, and tap will interpret music from Tchaikovsky to Ellington.
