Paramount Theater presents The Hip Hop Nutcracker, an urban hdance retelling of the timeless fairy tale, featuring rap legend Kurtis Blow as special guest MC.The Hip Hop Nutcracker resets Tchaikovsky’s classic score to explosive hip-hop choreography courtesy of Jennifer Weber. A dozen all-star dancers – plus a DJ, a violinist, and awesome digital scenery – bring the traditional Nutcracker story to new life, but with a distinctly urban twist. This evening-length show celebrates love, community and the magic of the holiday season.
“Hip Hop Nutcracker brings a generous dose of contemporary spirit, sure to heat up even the most restless and wintry of souls,” raves The New York Times. “If you’re more into break-dancing than ballet, but still love Tchaikovsky, this is the Nutcracker for you,” says CBS.
