Boston media got an early look at the new costumes for Boston Ballet’s “The Nutcracker” on Wednesday. Designer Robert Perdziola, who has created sets and costumes for the Metropolitan Opera and worked on movies such as “Interview With the Vampire,” is responsible for the look of this new production. The company says we will see 182 costumes onstage at each performance, and that “Perdziola hand-tipped every Sugar Plum and Snow Queen tutu with metallic paint.” “Nutcracker” performances start Nov. 23 at the Boston Opera House. Look for a photo essay on the making of the production in the Globe’s Holiday Arts Preview, coming Nov. 18.
