Bossov Ballet Theatre's The Nutcracker

This winter, December 9–11, Bossov Ballet Theatre (BBT) will perform a complete version of The Nutcracker at the Waterville Opera House, an established tradition in the area for more than 25 years.

Artistic Director Natalya Getman strives to create new choreography each year to keep the show fresh and engaging for their audiences. For those who have been following BBT for a long time, there will always be new, exciting, and captivating nuances to enjoy. This year’s international cast is formed by dancers from Japan, Germany, Russia and Mexico, as well as different states across the country. Treat your family to this enchanting story and join in the mysterious journey of Marie to the Land of Magic, where toy soldiers, dancing mice, delicious treats, and the Sugar Plum Fairy are brought to life by the magic of Uncle Drosselmeyer. This classical ballet—set to Tchaikovsky’s timeless score—continues to delight audiences year after year.
