    Anthony Williams' Urban Nutcracker

    Presented by at John Hancock Hall

    December 8 - December 23, 2012


    Anthony Williams' Urban Nutcracker

    Urban Nutcracker presents a multicultural interpretation of the dance classic, performed by professional dancers and a cast reflective of the rich diversity & promise of Boston’s youth. Urban Nutcracker follows the story line of the 19th century fairy tale fusing ballet, swing, hip hop, flamenco and urban tap with the classical score of Tchaikovsky and the pulsating beat of Ellington.

    By casting dancers from multi-ethnic backgrounds, Urban Nutcracker provides the audience with an invaluable opportunity to bridge cultural barriers. Designed to push beyond traditional interpretations and therefore beyond the traditional audience reach of the holiday classic, Urban Nutcracker will inspire a new generation of dance enthusiasts/theater patrons!
