Hip Hop Nutcracker is an evening-length production performed by a supercharged cast of a dozen all-star dancers. With the freshest hip-hop choreography, a live DJ and electric violinist, this crowd pleasing and uplifting saga turns the original Tchaikovsky score on its head in the coolest possibly way.
Digital scenery transforms E.T.A. Hoffmann’s story into a romance set in 1980’s New York. Rap legend Kurtis Blow is special guest MC for this new holiday traditional celebrating love, community and the magic of New Year’s Eve.
