For the first time ever, Boston Ballet will partner with NBC10 Boston to bring Mikko Nissinen's The Nutcracker to homes across New England. Celebrate the holiday season with a brand-new, one-hour broadcast of this beloved ballet and bring the magic of The Nutcracker straight to your living room.
Mikko Nissinen's heartwarming ballet enthralls audiences of all ages with its colorful characters, breathtaking costumes, and majestic scenery. Follow Clara as she embarks on a journey filled with brave toy soldiers and dancing snowflakes. From the dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy to the iconic snow scene, this calssical ballet-set to the memorable music of Tchaikovsky-conjures the childlike wonder in us all.
We are thrilled to bring this treasured tradition to television for the first time. In keeping New England's families safe, we bring them even closer to the world of The Nutcracker and spread the joy of the season to a broader and more diverse audience than ever before.
