The Nutcracker: José Mateo Ballet Theatre at the StrandAfter nearly three decades, José Mateo Ballet Theatre’s original version of The Nutcracker continues to honor the classical tradition while putting an innovative interpretation on this holiday icon.

Jose Mateo Ballet Theatre honors the classical tradition by continuing what may well be New England’s longest running interpretation of The Nutcracker ballet.

Following its 1988 premiere in Fall River, various tours throughout the state with regular performances in Springfield, Worcester, and Lowell, and a ten-year run at Boston’s Emerson Majestic Theatre, the production quickly distinguished itself as one of the first versions anywhere to focus more on the dancing than on the usual caricatured mime, pomp, and special effects of its predecessors.

Even the cast of over 100 children who play the Mice, Soldiers, Cherubs, Polichinelles, and Clara have substantial dancing roles.

While Jose Mateo Ballet Theatre takes pride in its ongoing mission to create new classical ballets, it is a pleasure to return each year to The Nutcracker as a salute to the traditional roots of the ballet form.

After nearly a thousand performances over the last 27 years, we have created a tradition of our own. Families return year after year to revisit Mother Ginger and her children, the dancing snowflakes, the waltzing flowers, and the Sugar Plum Fairy with her cavalier.

Make José Mateo Ballet Theatre’s The Nutcracker part of your holiday tradition!

Jose Mateo's The Nutcracker
Just saw Jose Mateo's Nutcracker and loved it! It's a small, intimate theater without the showy glitz and expensive stagings, so it's all about the dance. My 7yo daughter was enthralled and my husband thought it told the story well through theatrical performance and dance. Since Mateo uses performers from his dance studio, it's great to see young children instead of adults on stage as mice. It's a great show for families. Spingold Theatre at Brandeis University
