According to this article, there is a new "Nutcracker" in
town Boston. The 2012 production of The Boston Ballet's "The Nutcracker" is a newly imagined take on the oft designed/redesigned ballet.
I had planned on getting tickets anyway, but the release of Robert Perdziola's sketches of the 2012 production sealed the deal. If his watercolor stills could be this amazing....watching them come to life promises to be truly breathtaking.
P.S. Boston-based folks are certainly not the only ones who can enjoy "The Nutcracker"- this site lists various performances from across the country!
