Christmas in July, Brought to You by the Boston Ballet Nutcracker Bear

Yes, Dance Spirit, there really is a Santa Claus. And we've got proof—namely, the delightfully silly stunt Boston Ballet's Nutcracker Bear pulled off last week to celebrate the start of ticket sales for BB's 2017 production of the holiday ballet classic.


For reasons that would maybe be clearer to me if I were a Bostonite, the Nutcracker Bear ziplined across the Rose Kennedy Greenway on Monday, July 12. (Boston-area DS-ers, please explain!) But it doesn't even really matter why, because the video and photos that emerged from the stunt are as merry and bright as anything I've seen since last December. If you don't believe me, check it out for yourself—and have yourself a wacky little Christmas (in July) now!
