The Nutcracker jazzed up!

Presented by De La Dance Company

De La Dance Company’s The Nutcracker Jazzed Up! is a Duke Ellington twist on the Tchaikovsky classic. The production combines Ellington’s jazzy 'Nutcracker Suite' and Tchaikovsky’s classical composition.  Artistic Directors Meridith Benson and Mario de la Nuez bring together a large cast of dancers to re-invent this yuletide classic.

The dancers will have the audience dancing in the aisles as the ballet opens in New York City in the 1940's with dancers swinging and bopping through the Ellington score. In the second act the stage is transformed into the magic kingdom of the sweets in which the full cast of classical dancers will enchant the audience with traditional and familiar ballet choreography.
