For their 10th Anniversary, Anthony Williams brings his ”Urban Nutcracker” to Wheelock Family Theatre. This Boston holiday classic jump starts the traditional Ballet with an inner city edge and features the professional BalletRox dance company and over 50 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.
