The Hip Hop Nutcracker turns Tchaikovsky on his head, in the coolest possible way.” – CBS

Presented with support from Joel & Lynn Carver


Heat up your Christmas tradition with an unforgettable contemporary mash-up of a timeless holiday story. A supercharged cast of a dozen all-star dancers combines with hip hop beats mixed by a live DJ and an on-stage electric violinist, turning Tchaikovsky on his head in the coolest possible way. A spell cast by the mysterious Drosselmeyer takes Maria-Clara and her prince back in time to the moment when her parents first met. Digital scenery transforms a palace of sugarplums into a modern, romantic setting in 1980s Brooklyn. If your family is more into break-dancing than ballet, this Nutcracker is the perfect gift!
