The Hip Hop Nutcracker

Saturday, December 2

KNIGHT CONCERT HALL

A holiday mash-up for the entire family, “The Hip Hop Nutcracker,” a contemporary work set to Tchaikovsky’s timeless music, is an evening-length production performed by a supercharged cast of a dozen all-star dancers, an on-stage DJ, an electric violinist and rap legend Kurtis Blow as MC. Through the spells cast by the mysterious Drosselmeyer, Maria-Clara and her 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 a palace of sugarplums into a romance set in 1980’s New York. The dance work celebrates love, community and the magic of New Year’s Eve.

The “Hip Hop Nutcracker” is directed and choreographed by Jennifer Weber. It is adapted to today’s New York by Mike Fitelson, executive director of UPCA – the work’s original producer – and includes hip-hop interludes remixed and reimagined by DJ Boo and an on-stage electric violinist.
