Check out this modern rendition of the holiday classic, set to Tchaikovsky's timeless music but performed in contemporary dance with MC Kurtis Blow, one of hip hop's founding fathers.

"The Hip Hop Nutcracker is a contemporary dance spectacle set to Tchaikovsky's timeless music. MC Kurtis Blow, one of hip hop's founding fathers, will open the show with a short set before rapping the introduction. The Hip Hop Nutcracker is a full-length production featuring a dozen all-star dancers, an on-stage DJ, and an electric violinist. Just like the classic Nutcracker story, 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 a colorful and contemporary New York City. Through the modern, self-expressive gaze of hip-hop culture, the dynamic performers will celebrate the magic of the entire holiday season on the most inclusive holiday of them all - New Year's Eve, a time for new beginnings.
