Urban Nutcracker will return to the Boch Center Shubert Theatre December 19 – 28!
Anthony Williams’ Urban Nutcracker, the modern Boston-centric holiday classic, will celebrate its 19th annual season at the Boch Center Shubert Theatre. The move to the historic Shubert Theatre will continue to allow even more Bostonians an opportunity to experience what The Boston Globe has deemed “a holiday arts tradition reflecting the rich multicultural diversity of Boston.”
The performances, December 19-28, 2019, will showcase winter scenes set in present-day downtown Boston, blending the rhythms of Duke Ellington with the classical music of Tchaikovsky. Anchored by classical ballet, the performances also include a broad range of dance forms such as tap, hip hop, flamenco, and jazz, accompanied throughout the performance by a small live orchestra, a first for Urban Nutcracker.
Over 150 child and professional adult dancers cast from a national open call, from the Tony Williams Dance Center in Jamaica Plain, and international guest artists will bring the Urban Nutcracker to life. Every season offers new and exciting updates, and dancers and additional announcements will be made in fall 2019.
