See the Hip Hop Nutcracker This Christmas

As we move further and further into the holiday season, the list of holiday events grows longer and longer. However, you can only watch ‘The Nightmare Before Christmas’ and ‘Elf’ so many times before you start looking for something different to try. Luckily, the Rosemont Theater in Chicago has just the show for you. Come out on Friday, December 09, 2016 at 7:30 pm to see the Hip Hop Nutcracker. Here is everything that you need to know.

The Nutcracker

For those who have not seen The Nutcracker, it is a ballet that was first performed in St. Petersburg all the way back in 1892. Although the play wasn’t generally well-received at first, it began growing in popularity in the 1960s, and it is now one of the most popular plays (especially holiday plays) in the theater today. It is most famous for its score, which was written by Pyotr Ilych Tchaikovsky.

The Hip-Hop Nutcracker

The hip-hop version is a mash-up that was designed for the entire family. The classic score by Tchaikovsky was re-imagined with highly entertaining hip-hop choreography. There will be a dozen talented hip-hop dancers on stage, along with a DJ and an electric violin.

For those looking to experience something a little bit different this Christmas season, consider attending the hip-hop version of The Nutcracker!
