HIP HOP NUTCRACKER
TCHAIKOVSKY’S TIMELESS MUSIC SET TO
“THE HIP HOP NUTCRACKER” DANCE SERIES
COMES TO BROWARD CENTER
The Hip Hop Nutcracker reimagines Tchaikovsky’s classic score through explosive hip-hop choreography as a dozen all-star dancers, an on-stage DJ and an electric violinist bring the traditional story to life in contemporary New York City.
Tchaikovsky wrote the score for the 1892 ballet The Nutcracker, now an annual holiday program for many dance companies. Even if one has never seen a performance, chances are they have heard the music in the M&M commercials, local malls, The Nutcracker or in other various places. However, even the best timeless traditions require some changes.
That’s what choreographer Jennifer Weber and her co-creator Mike Fitelson had in mind when they premiered “The Hip Hop Nutcracker” last year in New York City.
The remaking of the more than 120 year old ballet, was geared to excite new audiences, by combining hip-hop dance against Tchaikovsky’s powerful music. According to Jennifer Weber, it’s visual, it's dance, it's storytelling.
In addition to the memorable sounds and images of the original ballet, it still contains the mice, soldiers battling, snowflakes, the Drosselmeyer with his eyepatch and cape and original hip-hop musical interludes composed by DJ Boo.
The show is most beautiful and definitely drawing attention. Last year, alone, it was performed before more than 3,000 people at the first performance and has sold out at other Theatres.
Tickets are $25 to $59 now on sale for performances November 29 through December 1, 2016 at 7:30 p.m. in the Amaturo Theatre at Broward Center located at 201 S.W. Fifth Ave., Fort Lauderdale. For additional information call 954-462-0222.
