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
Dance Prism’s presentation of The Nutcracker is a fully-staged professional production featuring lively choreography, Tchaikovsky’s beloved music, and the traditional delights of this favorite holiday tradition. Dance Prism’s Nutcracker offers an affordable, family-friendly opportunity to celebrate the holidays with a production enjoyed throughout New England since 1982.
The performance follows Clara’s magical journey from a traditional 19th century Christmas party through a fantastic battle of toy soldiers and giant mice and a voyage through the ethereal kingdom of Snow, arriving finally at the Land of the Sugarplum Fairy where sweets from all lands come to life and dance in her honor.
Tchaikovsky’s exquisite score accompanies a cast of 140 professional and aspiring dancers as well as a growing Christmas tree, a reindeer drawn sleigh amidst a swirling snowstorm, and the clash of swords as a menacing Rat King battles the valiant Nutcracker Prince.
