If you aren’t sure that you can handle the crowds and the cold at First Night in Boston, NYE Nutcracker with Boston Ballet is a great way to ring in the new year.
Spend time together in the beautiful, warm and festive Boston Opera House. You’ll be treated to a brass concert of Holiday songs before the show from 7:00 – 7:30.
Then, take your seat for Boston Ballet’s Nutcracker New Year’s Eve style. This continuing New Year’s Eve tradition, that started five years ago, adds a few twists to the performance. Extra cast members pop into scenes turning solos into duets and duets into trios. I hear that Santa, now that he’s done deliveries for the year, steals a few dances as well.
Tickets are available online or contact the Box Office at 617.695.6955.
