We have a new holiday tradition to tell you about: The Hip Hop Nutcracker at the United Palace in upper Manhattan!
“The Hip Hop Nutcracker” takes the classic story, transplants it to contemporary Washington Heights and combines Tchaikovsky’s magical score with explosive hip hop dance. It was an enormous hit last year, delighting audiences of all ages.
The press loved it. The New York Times described it as: “magical” with “touches of poetry.” Time Out New York called it “a classic rebooted.” CBS News said “The Hip Hop Nutcracker turns Tchaikovsky on his head in the coolest possible way.”
There are only two performances at the United Palace, so get your tickets now!
Opening night is Friday, November 20 at 8p.m., with special guest Kurtis Blow, the “King of Rap.” The performance on Saturday, November 21 at 2p.m. benefits United Palace of Cultural Art’s Youth Arts Academy and features a pre-show mash-up performed by their young students.
