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

The Nutcracker will be performed at both the Cutler Majestic Theater in Boston 11/30 - 12/9), and at the Strand Theater in Dorchester (12/14 - 12/23).

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!
