Mario Testino’s celebrity photos at the MFA Boston

Unforgettable images of the British royal family and other international superstars are on display in two current exhibits at Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts.

“Mario Testino: In Your Face,” running now through Feb. 3, showcases fashion photographer Testino’s glamour shots of such celebrities such as Gisele Bundchen, Lady Gaga, Mick Jagger, and Brad Pitt. “British Royal Portraits,” on view now through June 16, includes images of Prince Charles and Princess Diana, their sons William and Harry, and recent photos of William and Kate, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge – many of which have never been seen before in the U.S.

During the course of Testino’s 30-year career, his photos have graced the covers of Vogue, Allure, and Vanity Fair and have illustrated ads for

Boston Ballet presents a brand-new ‘Nutcracker’

What would the holidays be without “The Nutcracker”? For Bostonians, this much-loved production by The Boston Ballet is as much a part of the season as the tree-lighting festivities on Boston Common. And

as everyone knows, you don’t mess with tradition.

Then again, a bit of reinterpretation can sometimes yield magical results. The fact is, there have been countless different versions of “The Nutcracker” throughout the years. Each production company and choreographer gives this ballet a unique spin. This year, it’s The Boston Ballet’s turn to freshen things up a bit. Artistic director Mikko Nissenen has re-imagined the production for 2012 with all new costumes and sets and even some new choreography.

The colors of the production will be lighter, the look “floatier and more romantic,” according to the designers. But don’t worry: the ballet will remain loyal to the classic storyline and, of course, to the wonderful music by Tchaikovsky that we all know and love. There are some traditions just too special to be tinkered with!

The world premier of The Boston Ballet’s 2012 production of “The Nutcracker” takes place on Friday, Nov. 23, at the Boston Opera House. Performances run through Dec. 30. For more information and tickets, click here.

The Kendall Hotel, a blend of historical charm and high-tech amenities is located an easy subway ride away from the Boston Opera House. Contact us for more information or to book a room.
