urban nutcracker streaming performances for 2020 photo2020 Boston Urban Nutcracker Info

Anthony Williams’ Urban Nutcracker, the modern Boston-centric holiday classic produced by City Ballet of Boston, moves online for 2020.

Special this year, Urban Nutcracker offers a stream of the recording of their 2019 production to audiences!

A true Boston story, local dance legend Tony Williams reimagined the classic holiday tale to become a Boston inner-city story with a neon-buzz, blending the rhythms of Duke Ellington with the classical music of Tchaikovsky.

The streaming performances, November 28—December 24, 2020, 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 by a small orchestra of local musicians.

More than 150 performers – local children and professional ballet dancers – take the streaming stage in this joyful rendition of heroine Ruby’s adventure with the street magician Drosselmeyer as they explore iconic Boston scenes such as Make Way for Ducklings statues, the golden dome of the State House, and the Boston Public Garden.

Fun for boys and girls alike, the Urban Nutcracker can be enjoyed by the whole family, and all ages!

Due to Covid-19's unparalleled impact on presenting live theater, City Ballet of Boston will not be able to celebrate the planned 20th anniversary of the “Urban Nutcracker.” This trend-setting holiday classic with an inner-city twist will celebrate its official 20th anniversary in 2021 at the Boch Center Shubert Theatre.
