The excitement is here!
Commonwealth Ballet's fourteenth annual presentation of the holiday classic, The Nutcracker, features Special Guest Star, AdéChiké Torbert, Top 4 Finalist on Fox TV's So You Think You Can Dance. AdéChiké shines in the role of Nutcracker Prince. Our performance will captivate and thrill with its intimacy, humor, musicality and exciting dancing.
The lavish sets and colorful costumes dazzle the eyes. Behold the beautiful Christmas tree as it grows to unbelievable heights, witness the battle between the Nutcracker and the Mouse King, and journey to the Snow Kingdom as Clara meets her Nutcracker Prince. Come along with Clara in her dream to a magical land of holiday sweets and greet sparkling dancers, Mother Ginger, glittering flowers and the Dew Drop Fairy.
Guest artist Vitali Krauchenka from the American Ballet Theatre will perform as Cavalier. Lindsay Moncrieff (Acton performances), and International star, Anna Licieca (Regis performances) will perform Sugar Plum Fairy. Michael Johnson, formerly of Boston Ballet, stars as the Snow King. The 14 dancers of Commonwealth Ballet and over 75 children and adults from local communities complete the cast.
