If you're looking for a twist on the usual BalletMet Nutcracker performance, the last show of this holiday classic's two-week run is always guaranteed to deliver. This year the last performance is on Sunday, Dec. 26 (at the Ohio Theatre, just like the other shows).
Now some years, BalletMet will stage a special "Nutty" Nutcracker with all kinds of satirical pranks and pratfalls. This is not one of those years. However, we can guarantee you there will still be plenty of little antics going on up on stage and an eagle-eyed audience member should be able to catch most of them. Bring your opera glasses and see if you figure out who's showing in the wrong costume or carrying the wrong prop.
