Music Center at Strathmore: The Hip Hop Nutcracker

December 13, 7:30 pm at Music Center at Strathmore.

This holiday mash-up for the whole family is back by popular demand! The Hip Hop Nutcracker reimagines Tchaikovsky’s classic score through explosive hip-hop choreography. A dozen all-star dancers, an on-stage DJ, and an electric violinist bring the traditional Nutcracker story to life in contemporary New York City.

  • Special guest emcee Kurtis Blow charted the first rap gold record with “The Breaks” in 1980. Blow opens the show with a rapping introduction.
  • The New York Times calls The Hip Hop Nutcracker, “A generous dose of contemporary spirit sure to heat up even the most restless and wintry of souls.”
  • DJ, MC, all-star dancers, and astounding digital scenery bring the traditional Nutcracker story to life in a contemporary urban setting.
