not that great...

we saw the previous version of Boston Ballet Nutcracker, and in comparison this one pales. The story line is completely rushed through in the first 20 minutes, and after that it just feels like a series of performances by artists, with conspicuous pauses designed to squeeze out the applause. The previous version was something special, it felt like a fairy tale and you felt elevated by it; this one is just a tourist attraction. On top of this the toy's costumes that were cute before, are kind of ugly now... It's really sad. Of course the dancers are still great, but unfortunately the magic is lost.
