Experience a New Take on The Nutcracker When The Hip Hop Nutcracker Comes to Town

A holiday mash-up for the whole family, The Hip Hop Nutcracker is back and better than ever!

Directed and choreographed by Jennifer Weber, The Hip Hop Nutcracker is a contemporary dance spectacle set to Tchaikovsky’s timeless music. Check it out for yourself on Thursday, December 5th at the Empire Theatre!

A unique and joyful event, the evening-length production of The Hip Hop Nutcracker is performed by a supercharged cast of a dozen all-star dancers, a DJ, a violinist, and MC Kurtis Blow, one of hip hop’s founding fathers, who opens the show with a short set.

Just like the original, in The Hip Hop Nutcracker, Maria-Clara and the Nutcracker Prince go on a dream adventure battling a gang of mice, visiting the land of sweets and learning the lessons of the holiday season. Innovative digital graffiti and visuals transform the landscape of E.T.A. Hoffmann’s beloved story from traditional 19th Century Germany to the vibrant, diverse sights and sounds of contemporary New York City. 

Through this re-mixed and re-imagined version of the classic, the dynamic performers of The Hip Hop Nutcracker take us on a journey that celebrates love, community and the magic of the holiday season. Enjoy a different approach to these everlasting values with The Hip Hop Nutcracker!
