Tchaikovsky's ballet masterpiece "The Nutcracker" gets a hip-hop remix as a supercharged cast of a dozen all-star dancers and digital scenery transplant the holiday favorite to New York City. Pirouettes are replaced with popping, and Tchaikovsky's iconic score gets a modern mashup with a violinist and DJ. This innovative spin on a classic celebrates love, family and the magic of New Year's Eve -- in a nightclub in 1980s Brooklyn, where Maria Clara's parents first meet. "Elle" magazine called "The Hip Hop Nutcracker", "a truly one-of-a-kind experience, filled with high-powered choreography and a very modern storyline."
