The Hip-Hop Nutcracker
with MC Kurtis Blow
A holiday mash-up for the entire family, The Hip Hop Nutcracker is a contemporary re-imagination of Tchaikovsky’s timeless music, blending artistic styles to celebrate the original material – with a decidedly modern twist.
The Hip Hop Nutcracker is a full-length production performed by a supercharged cast of a dozen all-star dancers, DJ, violinist, and famed rapper, MC Kurtis Blow. 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.
