Tchaikovsky's ballet masterpiece The Nutcracker gets a fresh hip-hop remix as a dozen all-star dancers, DJ and violinist bring it to life at Boston's Emerson Colonial Theatre. 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 hip-hop crew Decadancetheatre perform The Hip Hop Nutcracker, with hip-hop interludes remixed and reimagined by DJ Boo and an on-stage electric violinist.
