More Information


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.
