The Big Deal: The Hip Hop Nutcracker At The Eisemann Center

by Gila Espinoza 7 Dec 2016 8:30 AM

“The Hip Hop Nutcracker” is an evening-length production performed by a supercharged cast of a dozen all-star dancers, DJ, and violinist. Through the spells cast by the mysterious Drosselmeyer, Maria-Clara and her prince, Myron, 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 a palace of sugarplums into a romance set in 1980s Brooklyn. The dance work celebrates love, community and the magic of New Year’s Eve. Win this pair of tickets and see the December 23 performance at the Eisemann Center for Performing Arts in Richardson.
