The Boston Ballet’s rendition of The Nutcracker is an annual tradition dating back for the past few decades. They have performed The Nutcracker annually for more than 40 years. Over the course of the more than 35 performances, the production uses the entire company, in addition to more than 250 Boston Ballet School students who perform in the production each year.
2012 sees Mikko Nissinen putting his spin on the Peter Illyich Tchaikovsky classic. The choreography was done by Mikko Nissinen, while the Costume and Set Design was handled by Robert Perdziola. The production made its world premiere on November 23, 2012 at the Boston Opera House in Boston, Massachusetts.
While the ballet is known for its incredible choreography, its costume design sets this production apart from most. 182 costumes are used in a single performance and more than 350 were made for multiple casts. In addition, more than 200,000 jewels are used on all of the costumes combined, including an astounding 3,600 on Sugar Plum and Dew Drop each.
In addition to the intricate costume design, the performance also features equally intricately crafted sets. All of the sets were painted by hand and created in the United States. In addition to that, most of the props were built in the Boston Ballet’s warehouse in Newburyport. The Christmas tree used in the performance is a miraculous 42 feet, 6 inches high.
This production is also notable for their introduction of a new character. In addition to the Bear and the Gingerbread, a new character, the Bunny, has also been inserted into the play. The scale of the performance is also immense, with more than 300 dancers performing in the production. Each performance has approximately 150 dancers in it, with the dancers coming from the Boston Ballet Company, the Boston Ballet II, and the Boston Ballet School students. There are more than 250 children in the performance, making up three casts, with students coming from the Boston, Newtown, and North Shore studios. Some roles have as many as twelve casts for them.
While the Boston Ballet puts on a number of large scale performances each season, this version of The Nutcracker is the biggest production the Boston Ballet has put on in years.
