Have you seen Boston Ballet’s Nutcracker? Do you love a bargain? Then you are going to love the fact that The Welcoming Committee (TWC) has secured tickets to the Nutcracker on Tuesday, December 9th. They have 100 seats (first and second row – front balcony) that normally sell for ~$150 each. TWC is selling them as part of their “Takeover the Nutcracker” for $68 each.
Tickets only last while seats remain available so quickly chat with friends or surprise your significant other with tickets to the show. I’ve seen the performance, and I can assure you that if you are not yet in the holiday spirit this show will help get you there. The sets and choreography are aaaaaaahhhmazing.

After the show join TWC for drinks at the Avery Bar at the Ritz Carlton. Shame on you if you’ve not already been and you let this opportunity pass you by.
The Boston Ballet’s Nutcracker opens later this week on Friday after Thanksgiving and will run through Wednesday, December 31, 2014. Sergio and I had the opportunity to see this production which first premiered in 2012 with new sets and costumes and we loved it.
If you haven’t been before I’d suggest that you check it out. You just may be surprised by how much you really enjoy both this classic story and the athleticism and grace of The Boston Ballet.

The current issue of Metrosource has a really interesting article about BalletBoyz, an all male ballet dance company that is touring parts of the United States starting later this month. Sadly the talented troupe will not be stopping in Boston.
Founded by two classically trained ballet dancers from London’s Royal Ballet School, the company now consists of ten dancers. Metrosource writer, Matt Gurry, describes the troupe as “committed to their work, while not sexual, flaunts an unabashed, athletic homoeroticism. They are young. They are brave. This new crop indeed struts like Greek Gods. But above all, they are indisputably talented.”
BalletBoyz will be coming to Philadelphia, Madison, Santa Barbara, Palm Desert, Portland and Los Angeles. For more information about the BalletBoyz and to purchase tickets, visit the website.
Here is a promo video from their 2013 tour.
Later this month (October 30th to be exact), The Boston Ballet will present the world premiere of Mikko Nissinen’s Swan Lake. The production features magnificent new costumes and sets.

If you happen to be watching this season of SYTYCD you are already familiar with the beautiful (but very tough judge) Misty Copeland. Misty is best known as a soloist ballerina for the American Ballet Theatre, but this new commercial from Under Armor is sure to increase her fame and change people’s perception of ballet. More than an art form, Under Armour’s commercial showcases the beautiful athleticism of ballet in their new I Will I Want ad campaign.
In addition to the inspirational message of never giving up, perhaps it will inspire you to check out Boston Ballet’s 2014-2015 season. Information about performance dates and tickets can be found online here.
