A holiday mash-up for the entire family, THE HIP HOP NUTCRACKER, a contemporary work set to Tchaikovsky’s timeless music, embarks on an international tour on the strength of last year’s sold-out tour across the country and Russia.
The Hip Hop Nutcracker is performed by a supercharged cast of a dozen all-star dancers, DJ and violinist. Digital scenery transforms E.T.A. Hoffmann’s story of a palace of sugarplums into a romance set in 1980s Brooklyn. The dance work celebrates love, community and the magic of New Year’s Eve.
