Everything old is new again. Tchaikovsky’s 129-year-old ballet is reimagined as a holiday dance spectacle in The Hip Hop Nutcracker. The production features hip hop pioneer Kurtis “The Breaks” Blow, the first rapper to be signed by a major label in 1979. Forty-two years and a heart transplant later, this hip hop founding father is still performing as MC of The Hip Hop Nutcracker. A cast of a dozen all-star dancers, an on-stage DJ, and an electric violinist turn the beloved score on its head.
