Nutcracker Information

Nothing brings in the Christmas season in New England like the tree lighting in Boston Common, an ornamented Copley Square and the Nutcracker at Boston’s Opera House. Showing 40 performances from Black Friday to New Year’s Eve, the Nutcracker put on by the Boston Ballet. An event for the whole family, audiences are encouraged to join Clara on her magical journey through an enchanted winter wonderland haunted by the Mouse King to her Prince’s palace of sugary confections to find the heart of what holiday cheer is really about.

The first scene opens occurs in the house of a German Town Council President, Herr Silberhaus, who is hosting a holiday party for family and friends. Councilor Drosselmeyer, an eccentric but kindhearted old man gives Clara, President Silberhaus’ daughter, a nutcracker in that cracks nuts between his jaws. Clara’s brother aggressively snatches the nutcracker and breaks it, deeply upsetting Clara. After the guests depart Clara creeps downstairs when the clock strikes midnight, startled by mice appearing in the living room. Clara watches in amazement as soldiers and the nutcracker come to life to battle the mice. Clara then butts in to strike the Mouse King with her slipper in defense of her nutcracker. Breaking the spell on the nutcracker, Clara transformed him into a gallant prince, who invites Clara to accompany him to the Kingdom of the Sweets, where the Sugar Plum Fairy reigns as queen.

The timeless story accompanied by an even more elegantly choreographed waltz put on by the Boston Ballet now boasts to call the Boston Opera House its permanent home, since 2005. The widely acclaimed performance is a must-see with tickets selling since the beginning of the year. Make your holiday season complete with a family trip to see the Nutcracker!
