Boston Ballet’s Sugar Plum Fairy wears two costumes in Mikko Nissinen’s The Nutcracker. The first (top photo) can be seen at the beginning of Act 2 where she greets Clara and the Nutcracker Prince. The second (bottom photo) can be seen at the end of Act 2 and the Grand Pas de Deux. 

Do you know how many jewels adorn the Nutcracker costumes seen under the lights of the Boston Opera House?
