Jose Manuel Carreño
This year’s production includes guest appearances from Cuban star Jose Manuel Carreño as the Cavalier, and Boston Ballet soloist Jeffrey Cirio as the Snow King.

  1. I just thrilled with this year's sophomore production of The Nutcracker. We have really made this production our own adding new costumes by Suzanne Nelson and new choreography in the battle scene and Spanish divertissement. Jose is a superstar not to be missed, Katia Carrenza has been a favorite ballerina of mine since I saw her at a YAGP gala in Mexico 5 years ago and Jeff Cirio is on the cusp of ballet greatness with his Princess Grace win and recent promotion at Boston Ballet.
