The Core didn’t have enough tickets for all current students to go see the Boston Ballet production of The Nutcracker this year, but ’tis the season for holiday ballet, so students of the Core are strongly encouraged to pursue the alternate routes to an audience seat.
1. Look into getting student rush tickets to the BB production, for $20.
2. Consider going to see Jose Mateo’s Ballet Theatre perform the famous Nutcracker from December 1-16. One of our Core alumni, Mikaela Ringquist, is an alumnus of the Jose Mateo school, and reports that while their Harvard Square production is smaller, it’s also more intimate. The Boston Ballet show this year has adopted a more modern design, while Jose Mateo is keeping things very traditional. More information about the show can be found at http://ballettheatre.org.
The Core encourages students to spread the word and bring their friends and fellow scholars to these inspiring performances of tranquil tunes and tutus.
