URBAN NUTCRACKER with BalletRox
December 3 - December 18, 2011
Anthony Williams brings his '”Urban Nutcracker” to Wheelock Family Theatre. This Boston holiday classic jump starts the traditional Ballet with inner city edginess 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.
