Commonwealth Ballet’s Nutcracker Back at Regis Starting November 24

Now I know it’s holiday time because the wonderful and lower-key-and-less-pricey-than-Boston-Ballet Commonwealth Ballet Nutcracker is back in town. Free parking! No urban shenanigans! Sleepy kids home by 8:15 pm. You just can’t beat it. Well, okay and I think I may have mentioned this one before but there was a ballet company in Brazil that used a trampoline in the orchestra pit during the big Mouse King scene and there were sword-carrying dancer mice bouncing all over the place onto the stage and back and it was frankly one of the most hilarious things I have ever seen. Yes, I am still missing Brazil.

Here’s the official stuff:

Share the merriment of the holiday season as the accomplished dancers of Commonwealth Ballet and guest artists frolic, battle and dance through Clara’s holiday dream in the Nutcracker! Join the family party set before a magical tree and enjoy the laughter, magic, and wonder of this holiday classic accompanied by the beloved Tchaikovsky score. This fully staged production is sure to captivate and entertain all ages. It’s the perfect start to the holiday season!

The performance lasts approximately 2 hours, including one intermission. Recommended for ages 4 and older.

Group discounts are available. Contact the CBC Box Office at 978-263-7794 for more information.
