Combining ballet, swing, flamenco, hip-hop, step and urban tap along with Tchaikovsky's classic score and Duke Ellington's signature swing, Tony Williams' Urban Nutcracker features a multicultural cast of talented dancers in this contemporary retelling of the classic fairy tale. Now in its 16th year, the production remains fresh with updated choreography, new costumes and surprise guest stars. Instead of the traditional children's roles "Clara" and "Fritz," though, this version of the story presented at Boston's Back Bay Events Center features the characters Clarice and Omar, whose roles are shared by talented local kids ages 9 through 13.
