The Hip Hop Nutcracker

Gerald Glaza 905 views


The Hip Hop Nutcracker reimagines the classic through explosive hip hop choreography. A dozen dancers, a DJ and an electric violinist bring the traditional story to life in modern-day New York City.

A holiday mash-up for the entire family, The Hip Hop Nutcracker, a contemporary re-imagination of Tchaikovsky's timeless music, sets out on a third national tour after the success of two previous sold-out tours.

Through the spells cast by the mysterious Drosselmeyer, Maria-Clara and her Nutcracker prince travel back in time to the moment when her parents first meet in a nightclub. Digital scenery transforms E.T.A. Hoffmann's story of sugarplums into 1980s Brooklyn. The Hip Hop Nutcracker celebrates love, community and the magic of New Year's Eve.
