5.00 avg. rating (89% score) - 1 vote

Seeing Boston Ballet’s The Nutcracker for the first time is a special memory for writer Annie Graves. If it made such an impact on a child in the audience, what about the children who perform onstage?

Yankee‘s Justin Shatwell talks with one of the girls who played Clara in Boston. Backstage photos of last year’s young dancers are by Sadie Dayton.

  • Brilliant! I first saw the Nutcracker at the San Francisco Ballet when I was 6 and I haven’t missed a year since! It is definitely a right of passage for lots of little girls – to learn to love the ballet. Even if you have no interest in ever taking dance. A wonderful interview full of insight! Thank you so much!!!!!

  • It’s so cool to see the behind the scenes and hear the over voice interview of the voices behind the faces. This shows all the preparation and hard work that goes into something so special. Great job Justin in pulling this slideshow together and extra special thanks to Sadie Dayton for her beautiful imagery on this very special occasion. Thanks for creating this lovely piece for us all to enjoy!!

  • A wonderful blend of photos and voices. The Nutcracker comes alive right on your computer.
