The New York Times

This holiday mash-up is back by popular demand! Join Maria-Clara and the Nutcracker Prince as they set off for a magical adventure…in modern day New York City.

The Hip Hop Nutcracker features Tchaikovsky’s classic score punched up by all-star contemporary and hip-hop dancers, a DJ, a violinist, and Kurtis Blow, one of hip-hop’s founding fathers, who opens the show with a short set.

This remixed and reimagined version of the holiday classic takes us on a journey that celebrates love and community.
