October 26-28, 2018 Tony Williams’ new venture, City Ballet of Boston launches their inaugural season at the Calderwood Pavilion at the BCA with a new show entitled: Souvenir.

Music by deBussy, Gershwin, Duke Ellington, Verdi, Chopin, Strauss, Schubert and Brahms accompany dances from the past and present.
“A Nutcracker…with real soul”
Tony Williams’ Urban Nutcracker, Boston’s original holiday classic, is back for its 18th season and packed with more magic for the whole family.
Urban Nutcracker puts a modern spin on the 19th Century fairy tale and transports the audience to an enchanted world not unlike their own. Say hello to Clarice & co…you’ve entered the world of the Urban Nutcracker. Strains of Duke Ellington dovetails with the buzz of neon driven by the heartbeat of Tchaikovsky. You could say it is a fusion of modern, multicultural and classical dance…but it’s more! It’s an organic interpretation brought about by a unifying of cultures. This is how art succeeds. This is why classic ballet, urban tap, hip hop, swing, flamenco, step and jazz blend into something special.
Each year the Urban Nutcracker runs at the Boch Center Shubert Theatre
