Boston Ballet's production of Mikko Nissinen's The Nutcracker received rave reviews during its premiere in 2012. This sparkling production, with sets and costumes by Robert Perdziola, "brings a softness and light to the venerable holiday classic" (The Boston Globe).
The timeless story of Clara, who bravely saves her Nutcracker Prince and is swept away on a magical journey through the Nutcracker Prince's kingdom in the clouds, is an engaging tale for the whole family and a holiday tradition for many years to come.
