The Hip Hop Nutcracker
TPAC's James K. Polk Theater
505 Deaderick St | Get Directions
A holiday mash-up for the whole family and a contemporary reimagination of Tchaikovsky’s timeless music, The Hip Hop Nutcracker returns to Music City in time for the holidays with a performance at TPAC’s James K. Polk Theater on November 25.
The Hip Hop Nutcracker returns to Nashville as part of a third national tour following the success of two previous sold-out tours, and an extremely popular two-show engagement at TPAC last year.
The production is 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 Nutcracker Prince 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 sugarplums into 1980s Brooklyn. The Hip Hop Nutcracker celebrates love, community and the magic of New Year’s Eve.
